What could be better than starting off with this absolutely fantastic portrait:
Photo by Hannes Caspar, 2008.
Great tones and expression. There is more work of the photographer on his website, which is more that worth a visit!
Also on his website I found the quite interesting Facity project. FACITY is an international online photo project. Faces from cities all around the world will be shown on a daily basis. Anyone can participate in FACITY as a photographer or a model. Apparently you just have to get in touch via the website.
