Photo 52 : Within the Frame / Classic Portraiture – Half Body [& Happy Birthday]

He loves soccer, tennis, hockey – pretty much all sports, watching and playing them.  He is obsessed with Pokémon cards.  When his little brother can’t handle losing he lets him win.  He wants to try to expand the universe of foods that he eats.  He can run a mile under 8 minutes.  Speaking of 8… that’s what he is today!

He doesn’t want me to tell you his birthday wish but it has something to do with the shirt that he is wearing.

Happy birthday, sweet boy.  You’ve brought so much joy to our lives.  I love you so much.

This week’s images are part of Project Framed.  As we continue our month-long study of classical portraiture, this week we explore the three-quarter profile portrait. This is the common pose of classic artists – think of Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or the portraits of Botticelli and other artists of the Renaissance. The three-quarter pose can tell us more than a headshot: it reveals the story and character of the subject through his or her clothing, status and surroundings.

And a flashback to almost 8 years ago…
