We all know there are many styles of portrait photography including traditional, environmental, fashion, documentary, etc. We all know the power that portraiture can display from various expressions and moods to identity and physical makeup. This is your chance to see numerous styles of portraiture on view in booth C2’s portrait collection at Art Miami New York!First up in the portrait collection is Floriane de Lassée. In Floriane’s series How Much Can You Carry? she documents portraits of people in remote communities carrying their treasured possessions on their heads. Representing a sense of curiosity and fun these portraits put forward what can be considered the community’s only survival means.
Next in the portrait collection is the work of Heather Dewey-Hagborg. Heather’s Stranger Visions series illustrates the future of science through portraiture. She collects cigarette butts, hair and chewed gum from public areas around various cities for DNA samples. Using these discarded items, Heather cracks genetic codes creating 3D face portraits of strangers. You have to see it to believe it!
And finally, the well know work of portrait photographer Sandro Miller and his muse John Malkovich. Sandro’s series Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich – Homage to photographic masters recreates some of history’s most iconic portraits. Don’t miss the many faces of John Malovich in booth C2 at Art Miami New York!

Chicago Reader’s favorite visual art of 2014…
Whether by some grand conspiracy or maybe (probably) just coincidence, Chicago’s curators and gallery owners spent 2014 preoccupied with the idea of transformation. Two of the fall’s most highly anticipated shows, “David Bowie Is” at the MCA and “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich” at Catherine Edelman Gallery, starring John Malkovich in Sandro Miller’s re-creations of iconic photographs, highlighted the multifarious incarnations of their subjects. -Chicago Reader
