Bias in Photography

We talk about this concept in my Intro to Photography class. Photography is filled with bias. A photograph is only a representation of the photographer’s perception of reality.  Created by The Lab, in conjunction with Canon Australia, the video clip below takes a look at how portraits can be shaped by a photographer’s point of view.

Six photographers individually enter the studio and meet their subject, Michael.  Each are give a different back-story about him.  Interestingly enough, the resulting portraits are very different.  It’s a really eye-opening experience that really makes you think how portraits should be created.
