EXIT #87 - Portrait Typologies

There are hundreds, thousands and millions of portraits floating around in our individual and collective me­mories: portraits from the history of art; portraits of famous people; of friends from yesterday, today and every future; of my family and all the families that ever existed; of delinquents in millions of police mugshots in every country in the world; everyday selfies; portraits of weddings, baptisms and birthday parties; of all the dead people we did not want to let go of completely... EXIT 87 Portrait Typologies is, precisely, an issue that brings together portraits from their widest diversity.

EXIT 87 Portrait Typologies begins with an essay by Rosa Olivares, who examines the use of portrait in photogra­phy through various artists such as Germán Gómez, Thomas Ruff or Catherine Opie, among others. Pierre Gon­nord, primarily renewed for the way he treats light and chiaroscuro in his portraits, captures the gypsy community or marginalized collectives such as beggars; Katy Grannanm, using the urban environment as her improvised photography studio, looks closely to anonymous people in San Francisco and Los Angeles; Bill Jacobson, with a much clearer conceptual style, explores portrait from the out of focus and the fading image; Juan Rodrigo Lla­guno brings us a more classical portrait of Mexico y Nikki S. Lee reflects on gender issues in portrait through her series Parts. The portrait and the mask are present through the lens of Ralph Eugene Meatyard and, Nelson Mora­les, from a more anthropological point of view, captures the Muxe communities in Mexico. Fragmentation in por­trait is present in Karen Navarro’s project, while Humberto Rivas brings us back to a more classical, black & white, portrait. Finally, we can find color in Carlo Van der Roer’s work, whose project is closely related to chromatics and emotions in portraits.

In Portfolio, the section in which we give space to the most interesting photographers of the new generations, we present Céline Bodin, Matthew Leifheit, Rubén Martín de Lucas, Soumya Sankar Bose y and Dana Ariel.
