In the foreword Carole Kismaric writes, “Lou Draper uses his camera to gently isolate people lost in the solitude of their own thoughts. Some are unaware of the camera and revel in their privacy as they experience fleeting moments of concern, joy, thoughtfulness or quiet recognition. Even when the subject acknowledges the photographer’s presence, by selecting one particular moment over countless others, Draper seems to underscore the individual’s uniqueness.” Exposure.10photographers.DraperBio

Draper’s portfolio includes two images we’ve never seen before:Exposure.10photographers.Draperspread 3

Kismaric also reflects on Barboza’s work, “In Anthony Barboza’s portraits, the viewer senses the deep affection that exists between the photographer and his subjects. Because each trusts the other, the photographic act becomes a collaboration, and the photographer is able to capture his subjects’ essential humanness.”Exposure.10photographers.BarbozaBio
