Ester Grass Vergara doesn't need much to create an arresting visual: just a subject and a background. Her main focus is on light, shadow and crisp lines.

Vergara's simplistic style, free of props and accessories, make her portraits even more powerful. And just because her style is minimal, doesn't mean there isn't a lot of careful consideration that goes into each photograph. Every glance, smile, turn of the head has been studied, contemplated and chosen. That being said, there is nothing fake or forced about any of Vergara's images.

Vergara's simple approach also allows her subjects to really shine. The viewer is able to get a sense of each person's essence, clear and sharp as day.
