Portraits Mexico 02 by ~Gorgoro is just one example of what you will find in this deviant's gallery. Gorgoro has a way with portraits, they always end up reflecting people's personalities, very vividly.
The suggester said the following: "His portraiture is particularly fantastic (see his portraits from India, France, Mexico) as he masterfully captures and frames each person's presence in the moment. His portraits seem to come to life as if the viewer were actually face-to-face with the subject. Igor never fails to include a narrative which further personalizes the portrait by placing it in context."

Portraits Mexico 02

I have to say he was in a really good mood that day. We were at the beach, drinking micheladas (cold beer with lemon, salt, spicy sauce, pepper, tomato and clam juice), and we were having a nice discussion, dreaming about moving to the coast, become fishers and forget about the world.

The rest of the time he is more…. Formal, but not much more.

Pancho. Chamela beach, December 2008.
