Posed Portraits: Looking at Pictures and People

What does a person's positioning, or posture, tell us about their character? Can a person's clothes and accessories give us insight into their personality? This week we'll check out a variety of portraits, focusing on the special exhibition of photographs by Yousuf Karsh (http://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/karsh-goes-hollywood), and see what we can figure out.
