Picture of the Week, May 23, 2013

It's not often we feature a full-on face shot as our POTW, but this Dahlia Katz portrait for Making Love With Espresso, featuring Lorenzo Pagnotta, is not only delicious in its own right, it is also a perfect example of Ms Katz's magnificent work. She has a way with faces (as we saw in her previous work for Antony and Cleopatra where she transformed without transforming actor Gillian English and in her picture of the year from last year). The details - beyond the actors' eyes - capture the viewer: the fingers on the cup, the watch, the hat, the few locks of curly hair). In short, Ms Katz helps the subject to draw us into the picture; she lets the actors act.
