Al Pacino - new portrait released
Al Pacino is regarded as the greatest actor not only of his generation but of any generation. An icon among icons, his career has spanned five decades and includes an Academy Award. He is most famous for his ability to get inside the mind of mobsters and bring them to life with shocking power.
Yet who is the real Al Pacino? It is the sign of the greatest actors that we lose them in the roles they play. Al Pacino’s name acts as a barrier between viewer and subject, leaving Pacino’s true identity tantalisingly out of reach. Both a mystery and the only means of access we have, the name is as frustrating as it is impenetrable, for who among us would not love to see inside the mind of a genius?
He captures something powerful and rare in his portraits.
