The beauty of portraiture is that there is often far more to an image than simple aesthetics. We should get a sense of the subject’s personality, their history and their situation at the time of the photo. On a basic level, the power of portrait photography lies in its ability to tell a story.

With these factors in mind, I’ve gathered together what I feel are some of the best examples of portrait photography from a variety of online photo communities, including Flickr, deviantART and 1x.
