Two weeks in one post. I hit a sort of “wall” in this project, a photographer’s block if you will. I am having trouble figuring out what self portraits mean, or can mean, and I haven’t had the mental availability necessary to think about it, nor have I been able to abandon myself to the project and figure it out later.
These two simple portraits are mere explorations of color and texture, with the use of mirrors as the only nod to the above issues.
I’m curious as to what other photographers (or any kind of artists, really) feel about self-portraits. What do they mean to you? Why do you do them?
