(Shaylene Spein, in front of food cashe, Kwethluk, Yup'ik village.) Clark Mishler - Photographer - Alaska, USA. He defines himself a visual anthropologist. The secret of portraits is to get the bare essentials, he says. If there's something in the background that's important to the subject then you can include it in the picture, otherwise you should discard it. He hopes his audience can experience through his work the feelings he experiences while he takes those same pictures.
