You really shouldn’t judge people so harshly, especially when you don’t even know them. I suppose we all do it at some time or another, but we need to try to stop and think first. We don’t know what each individual person has gone through in his/her life, we don’t know his circumstances, we don’t really know anything about them. So how can we judge? Stop for a minute and take a look at yourself, and think about how it’d feel to have someone say something horrible about you, when you’ve done nothing to provoke it. It really doesn’t feel so good. In fact, it hurts pretty badly, at least for me.
Thank you so, so much to the wonderful people here who know that self-portraiture is actually a valid form of art and understand that this is a way to express myself, learn about myself, and accept myself. And I am truly attempting to create art. If you think I fail, well, what ever happened to “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”? I am not a conceited woman who just wants to try to show how great I think I look (which I DON’T think, by the way!!)….That’s not what it’s about at all. …It’s about my emotions, feelings, expressing myself, and it’s about art.
These self-portraits are just one part of my portfolio….I do not only focus on me. I love photographing just about anything and everything.
