Unusual Portraits

Los Angeles-based photographer Caesar Lima’s portraits come with a certain choose-your-own-adventure quality to them, emphasized by Lima’s myriad of protagonists from mad scientist to Hollywood seductress. A self-proclaimed non-conformist, the Sao Paulo-born photographer says he has always gone against the creative grain. His unique style has earned him multiple awards and accolades, including most recently four IPA Awards (2013), One Eyeland Award (2013), Px3 Award (2012), IPA Awards (2011-2012), and L├╝rzer’s Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers (2011). Working with clients like Sony, T-Mobile, K-Swiss, and Wella, Lima says to make a good portrait is a challenge—there has to be plenty of expression, mood and attitude to create that one winning image. via Featured Shoot
