The last time I went it seems to be a requirement to have a sneering, disappointment, surly looking and unwashed subject.

This might be a reaction against the candy apple smile that most people associate with Portraits but they did nothing for me.

The photographic portraits I like were done by photographers such as Cecil Beaton

BTW Sotherbys’ have a Beaton exhibition on until Saturday - http://www.chrisbeetles.com/gallery/...il.php?id=1050
