Katie Morris submits Doug Dubois

Dubois' photos intrigue me because of the intensity of his subjects. Some of his portraitures are very stern and intensified. When coming across some of his works, I find that the subjects have complete control over their atmosphere. He places them in their natural environment, which allows them to feel comfortable and vulnerable. Also, the people presented in his work are not beautified or glammed up in any way. They are simply shown as themselves as they would be from a day to day basis. That's the beauty I find in the photographs because it's who they are as individuals. It's a positive presentation because there isn't false advertisement. The truth speaks through these images. What I also admire is that he uses people from different age groups. From young children to the elderly. It's like he promotes the life cycle in his imagery from youth to old.
