“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” – Paul Caponigro, photographer

In our 2015 summer issue, Mountain Outlaw asked photographers around the world to submit portraits with short captions that tell fascinating stories. Aside from our direction that the subject should be a human figure, we left the definition of “portrait” up to the artist.

Pictured below are the selected finalists. We now ask you, the reader, to vote for your favorite photo. The winning photographer will receive $1,000 in cash and prizes.

Votes may be placed by each individual up to three times a day through September 1.
