Richard Dumas is not a portraitist, but a photographer. In contrast with another photographer named Richard (Avedon, to be exact), Dumas is not a socialite or a star because he shoots celebrities or fashion photographer. This distinction is not intended to tarnish this celebrated photographer's essential role but to better understand Dumas's personal talents. 

He is immediately recognizable by his somewhat dandy-like elegance and his intuition for strong and restrained contrasts. His pictures seem to be out of time, transforming them into icons through the mystery of his square or rectangular compositions, which holds unexpectantly the vibrations of light. Richard Dumas' refined photography is nourished by literature, Portuguese cinema, and a rich variety of music ranging from jazz to rock.
