A Sense of Self
Self-portraits are important.
To be able to record a moment in time is special and should be treated as such. The creative process should be enjoyed. Take the work of Vivian Maier as an example, she’s wasn’t doing it for the followers on Instagram.
The photograph may not be about a person for the most part but surroundings, a sense of place. No doubt there’s something captured in the frame that’s a date stamp or an ode to an era.
In the above you can see in the background the wall of the barn that I’ve half stripped and should actually be working towards painting rather than taking photos. Summer projects.
