Portraits are more relevant than ever

It is estimated that today around one million photos are taken per minute worldwide. Hundreds of millions of photos are uploaded to social media every day. The total number of photos taken in a year is in the trillions, and yet, the numbers are growing steadily. In this multitude, it’s easy to lose the most important photos that capture precious moments.

Today, every smartphone has a high-resolution camera, and more than one. So photography and the process of taking pictures has become more than just accessible, it has become commonplace, everyday. Today’s photos lack coziness and atmosphere because they no longer evoke awe and carry so little value. Whereas creating family photos used to consist of picking outfits, locations and developing film, now it’s enough to open an app. However, even professional photos today don’t hold the same value as they used to. Unlike artwork that has always had great value.

A camera can capture life’s highlights or the smiles of loved ones but it can’t save them unless they are in binary code. So do other storage devices, they can only save a file. Without looking at the picture, in the humdrum of the day it is almost impossible to remember all the pictures in the memory of a smartphone or a laptop. And it doesn’t evoke emotion at all, the value of the photos is lost, and in the worst case the photo itself is lost. That’s why souvenirs with printed frames, memorable gifts, photo frames, Polaroids and the like are so popular. It helps to convey the impressions and feelings embedded in the picture. And a picture – a portrait from a photograph – reveals emotions best of all.
