Portrait photography of people is a true art, because you get the essence of someone, in a certain moment. It´s like photography manages to capture a person's soul. To do that, you gotta be good and Joel Grimes really knows how to do that.

Joel Grimes is an American photographer who delivers us these great pieces of work. He has, also, a great post-work manipulating these pictures beautifully. For more of his work, visit his Flickr photostream or his website at http://www.joelgrimes.com/. Also we'd like to thank you Tyrone Michael for sending us the suggestion for this article
