Comment

10 portraits of writers
Otta Breicha created this series of portraits during his numerous encounters with artists. They are characterized by a certain lenience where partly the pose of the pictured person and partly the snapshot-like moment dominates the composition.
The restraint of the photographer towards the pictured person is remarkable.
