Platon Antoniou is a 21st Century photographer who is well known for his portraits of presidents. His work I most favour is his photography taken in black and white. I have always felt that black and white photography puts better focus on the subject. In this portrait of Keanu Reeves the black and white portrait has an exquisite feel about how he is looking away from the camera. Reminds me of his time spent as Neo in the Matrix
