Here are some very cool portraits by Nickolay, found on the Flickr Group. For those who’ve been around for a while you’ll have noticed my weak spot for square format photography. What really gets me excited about this type of photography is the sort of centric emphasis it gives to the subjects. This applies perfectly to Nickolay’s pictures, as it brings out more than just the beauty in the capture itself, but also the question of ‘what’s the story behind this shot?’
Some of these definitely seem to have either a really funny or tragic story to tell.
