Jane Bown: Photo Brassai 1982

Jane Bown is a British photographer who takes portraits. She works for the Observer in the United Kingdom and has made her portraits of the 20th and 21st century famous and had been set up in London in 1980 for viewing. Her photos are always black and white and of people.

Her photograph of Brassi in 1982 really stood out to me. I like the look of this old man because he looked as if he has forgotten something or is confused and he is dressed as if he is at a wedding. His tie is black but his head is shinny and almost white which really stands out. The contrast looks amazing. I’m drawn to looking at his eyes since they are sticking out and his pupils are very dark. His facial expressions also stand out very well. I think this is a great portrait.
