“I believe taking someone’s portrait should not take more than few minutes. My career as a portrait photographer enabled me to quickly connect with my subject, relying on our common ground as human beings. My goal is always to create a portrait that capture the viewers’ attention. They might not know why, out of all the images they are bombarded by, they chose to stop and stare at your portrait but they will. They will communicate with it because something in it will touch them, they will get the feeling that they know you, that they can relate to you and they will want to know more about you. This portrait will pop up for them when they close their eyes and they won’t understand why. Because in this era, where millions of images pass in front of our eyes every second, he who has a real, strong, time stopping portrait is the one that affects consciousness, he is the one people google his name.”  Tal Giovny
