the art and horror of self-portraits
Confession. I was going to post this without identifying it as a self-portrait. But I figured the internal battle was worth speaking to. I do. not. like. self-portraits. Maybe this is some insecurity issue I just need to get over.
Because the thing is, when inspiration strikes, there isn't always going to be someone around to turn into your model for 10 or 15 minutes to try it out. If you're anything like me, most of the time, the only person around when creative urge and ingenious strikes is YOU.
Confession. This is a self-portrait. I will claim it as mine.
What about you? Do you have a love-hate relationship with self-portraits? What about a fave self take?
