For British Journal of Photography’s December 2015 issue, we’ve discovered the best new and emerging portrait photographers in the business, and asked how they’re innovating the eternal genre of photography.

We’ve devoted an issue of BJP to portraiture every year since 2010, but this year we decided to have some fun with it.

Seeking out images in which the sitter’s face is obscured, we found a wealth of projects – partly because that’s always the way when you’re looking for something but also, perhaps, because there are a lot of them about at the moment. Despite the ubiquity of selfies and family snaps – or maybe because of them – it seems photographers and curators have got interested in portraits that do something different.
