Group Description

Flickr Fine Art Portrait Gallery - View this group's photos on Flickriver

Please read the Group Rules before joining and abide by them

A group for those who engage in fine art portrature in whatever medium - painting, drawing, collage, digital, photographic, sculptural, conceptual, etc.

A portrait is defined as "a painting (portrait painting), photograph (portrait photography), or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position." From: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portrait

This group takes that to be the minimum definition and also allows full body portraits. Portraits of self and others are equally acceptable, as are group portraits and diptych/triptych formats etc.

As a result of this definition family and friends snapshots, simple poses and glamor photographic portraits, cute children, wedding photograpic works, amimals etc are not suitable for this group and will be removed to keep the group true to its title and aims. There are many other portrait groups on flickr catering for this kind of portrait most especially www.flickr.com/groups/theportraitgroup/

If you have fine art and photography portraits to share please join the group and add them, since variety is truly the spice of life and evey good structure is built one element at a time! If you have aready shared them with us, then many thanks.
