The website for the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution features an online version of its physical exhibit, "Portraiture Now: Feature Photography". The exhibit is comprised of contemporary photographic portraits by six photographers whose work has been in such publications as The New Yorker, Esquire, and The New York Times Magazine. Each photographer's portraits can be viewed in a group, thus heightening their impact and the artists' statements can be viewed via a link below the brief bio of the artist along with audio links to interviews with some of the artists. Particularly arresting are the portraits by Katy Grannan which appeared in The New York Times Magazine article "The Women's War", which featured Iraq war veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
