So I've made a deal with myself to do a self-portrait each week in 2012. 52 selfies in 52 weeks.
Self-portraits are so revealing. They show how we feel about ourselves, how we really look. I have many times said that I don't like I how I look in pictures, but the truth is, I just haven't liked how I look in life. This is a journey in self-discovery and acceptance for me. I hope you think about doing your own project. Already with my first I realized how hard this is going to be, at least at the beginning.
I took this one on the way to work this morning, sitting in traffic. Not really wanting to look into the camera.
But, I am accepting, and therefore sending this 1st Self-Portrait out into the void.
Have you ever taken a self-portrait? What was your experience?
