It has been a long time since I took some self portraits. The act of self portraiture is a fascinating one. Your model is always available when you are, she is as keen about your ideas and as enthusiastic about creating them as you too. She waits patiently as you play with your camera and light and dress the set. She fits into all your costumes. I love the responsibility that comes with self portraiture- that I am the idea, the production, the product. I can’t blame anyone else for the finished work being ruined or imperfect. But I also love that recklessness and sense of abandon. That I can throw myself into an image however feels natural and right and good. It’s like singing on stage blind.
