Student Portfolio: Santiago Rúa Henao | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Statement: Design is my responsibility, but photography is my passion. My knowledge of design has given me the foundation for making photography into my own science, a science as free as art, but as complex as geometry. It is the science of finding form, of organizing spaces, of experimenting with knowledge and placing it within the image, seducing minds, telling stories, fighting a battle with time and space, reducing the existence of life into a moment frozen into a negative.

Inspired by the ground-breaking 1976 Rolling Stone photo essay shot by Richard Avedon entitled "The Family," I thought it would be interesting to see if Fortune could run a long photo essay featuring portraits of the world's most powerful people. Eric Pooley, Fortune's then-managing editor, green-lit the project.
