Video Essay: An Island's True Face

Beyond just the scenery, it is the people who make an island a beautiful place. ISLANDS worked with some of the world's top travel photographers -- Macduff Everton, Jad Davenport, Jen Judge, John Kernick, R. Ian Lloyd, Matthieu Paley -- to create a photo essay of their favorite portraits for our December 2008 issue. Here, the photographers discuss those images and what makes a great portrait.
