Whether straight-faced or sporting a slight smile, the portraiture work of Kane Hopkins have the ability to draw you in. The Vancouver-based photographer’s subjects project a certain poise and self-stability: every shot is natural, nothing feels too composed. His portraits give a sense of empowerment to the person in the photograph.

Illustrating the beauty of happiness, sadness or neutrality, Hopkins’ portraits feel contradictory in the sense of being simultaneously vulnerable and unshakeable. Something is enticing about each of them, and Hopkins has the natural ability to draw out one’s character in a single frame.

Hopkins’ client list includes Quicksilver, Wilhelmina and Flanelle Magazine, among others. See more of his work here.
