Trading Places

Long ago and far away my friend and fellow photographer Cris Pulos and I traded portrait sessions.  I set this one aside.  With his trademark Greek fisherman's cap Cris is full of craggy charm and has a decided twinkle in his eyes.  A playful quality.

It could be a vintage photograph taken on Santorini in 1949 or under my portal last year.  Seems to me that black and white portraits can be timeless.  Some of Edward S. Curtis's images taken near the turn of the last century are still remarkably contemporary.
