International photojournalist Michael Coyne asks, "How do you photograph people? It’s a question I’m frequently asked.

"What jumps into my mind immediately is the word ‘respect’. Respect the people you are photographing, listen to them and make them the centre of attention. This belief is central to the work of Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado who said, “I have often been asked what makes a good photographer of people. Well, I believe that you must show a strong respect and love for the people you are photographing – if you do, then that respect will be apparent in your photographs which will then have a great dignity.”

"Respect and dignity go hand in hand. This is clearly evident in Salgado’s projects where, despite the fact that many of the subjects in his pictures are struggling with health issues or poverty, they are nonetheless shown in a dignified way.

In this issue of Better Photography, Michael looks at the different ways he and other photographers have engaged with their subjects. Portraiture isn't just about camera skills and techniques, it's very much a mind game.
