Photographic portraiture has always served a number of functions: from practical identification to storytelling and the intimate personal portrait. With a fresh approach, Face Time explores the many modes of portraiture―from fine art photography to fashion, and from anthropology to cinema―as well as the ways we encounter and interpret a portrait, from the news-hour mugshot to the glossy fashion photograph. Organized into eight thematic chapters, curator and photography historian Phillip Prodger captures more than 150 years of photographic portraiture, including nineteenth-century pioneers Hippolyte Bayard and William Henry Fox Talbot, modernist icons Lee Miller and Aleksander Rodchenko, as well as contemporary groundbreakers Newsha Tavakolian, Rineke Dijkstra, and Zanele Muholi.
