"No 3 from profiles lll" by Bettina von Zwehl

I chose this picture by Bettina von Zwehl because I though it was different. This is a unique portrait because it is a picture of the side of a person rather than of the person looking straight. A lot of her portrait work is this way. In addition, since you only see the side of the baby's head it's hard to decide what expression he is hiding. Even with normal portraits from bettina the person in the picture is usually still and expressionless. This picture looks like a mugshot of a baby. I think this is ironic because baby's are synonymous with being innocent where as this type of picture resembles a mug shot, which are taken when people are not innocent.
