  For (almost) as long as humans have been on this earth, portraits have existed in one form or another. We’re drawn to portraits – taking them, making them – because they reflect something of our existence here. There’s also the fascinating aspect of recognising a bit of ourselves in others, or being confronted with something completely foreign. With all of this in mind we’ve put together a collection of portraits by South African artists that have struck our fancy, kept us looking and left us wondering.   8-Portrait-John-Murray-620x835
