Dark blogger portraits by Gabriela Herman

April 19, 2011

Gabriela Herman is a fine art, portrait and lifestyle photographer who is recognized for her intimate approach and ease with her subjects.

Gabriela has traveled worldwide; her work has always traveled with her and as a result has been exhibited in several countries.

This post features Gabriela's most recent portrait project, featuring nineteen shots of nineteen different reasonably well known bloggers.

The photographer reads blogs, and reads a lot of them. This project was inspired by the digital age and the ways in which we spend our time. In dark corners, bloggers are adding value to and changing the way we as humans interact with the world.

The bloggers emerge from their corners in this project, showing their faces (along with their computers) to the world wide web.
