Portraiture Now: Feature Photography

I just checked out the Portraiture Now: Feature Photography exhibit over at Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery today. And I was very glad I did. I was treated to gorgeous, giant photographs with an almost liquid, hyper-realistic quality to them. Photographers include Katy Grannan, Jocelyn Lee, Ryan McGinley, Steve Pyke, Martin Schoeller, and Alec Soth. If you’re near the Chinatown Metro Stop, I highly recommend stopping by.
