Luke and Nacoya, 2016

by Daniel Sponiar

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2017 Finalist

Luke is the lead singer and guitarist of a heavy metal band. That brings with it a certain stereotype in terms of one’s appearance. But Luke has a softer, more vulnerable side, which is what I wanted to show in this portrait. Here he is with Nacoya, his black Pomeranian.
