This paper critically reflects on two distinct approaches to portraiture employed in my practice. While outwardly different, each shares with the other an identical conceptual constraint: to disclose something private in public. In doing this I differentiate between the covert methods of candid photography, giving details of its ethical and artistic complexities, and the participatory process of a posed portrait. I discuss both methods comparatively and point to what they promise as methods for revealing something private.
