There were numerous photographs in the 2007 Photo Review Competition in which the sitter’s face is essential. In some the photographer cropped tightly into the face, providing a confrontation we cannot escape. In others, gesture and body language — or the environment (real or imagined) — play an important role, but it is still the face and its expression that animates what we understand about the subject.
