Faces of Humboldt Photo Contest

What's in a Face?

All five senses dwell there, competing for the mind's attention. Your emotions are most acutely expressed by the twitch of your cheek and brow muscles. The face is a translator, making each of us fluent in the universal human language.

You wear your history on your face — the blessings and the struggles. And, perhaps, you wear your future there as well.

Portraits are often the most dynamic photographs, capturing a moment but also telling an entire story — or at least hinting at one. Portraits can be eerie or inviting, but they are inescapably relatable. We are looking at ourselves.

What makes a face "Humboldt"? We left that up to the readers and amateur photographers who submitted more than 100 photographs of their families and friends — human and otherwise. And here, curated by discerning Journal staff, are the best of the bunch. From peachfuzzed infant cheeks to grizzly beards, this is you, Humboldt. And it is good.
