The Lina Bertucci 'Artist Portraits' project is very refreshing. We rarely get to see those who are responsible for creating the artwork we love.

Unless your favorite artist is someone like Terry Richardson, there is a chance you may not even know what he or she looks like. The Lina Bertucci 'Artist Portraits' series turns the lens on some great artists like James Lee Byars, Haim Steinbeck and Kiki Smith.

Implications - Bertucci's creatively captivating portrait series is a must-see for any photography lover! By turning the lens on the photographer, she gives insight into the emotions and characters that drive the brilliant works of these celebrated artists. Artworks in and of themselves, Bertucci's artist portraits are a unique take on the conventional portrait that shines new light on the subjects.
