Richard Learoyd’s subjects urge us to get to know them. Their pose and the way they look at the camera create a space around them that invites us to try to read them. This unique photographer’s portraits are timeless. Time stands still and the artist attempts to slow down the moment in which we are trying to read the person looking out at us.

In this video, Learoyd shares his particular way of looking at the world and invites us to imagine the range of feelings hidden behind his lens.
