Black and White photography by definition is a reductive exercise, just by stripping away colour, to focus on light, shadow, tonality and texture. In this portrait, we go even further; only the eyes and hands are unobscured, but even so  the model packs a lot of expression into her eyes and hands. On of my favourite portraits of 2011!
