Self portrait. I felt the need to step outside my own privileged shoes today and shot a series of shots in a makeshift burqa as an attempt at social commentary on women and freedom. I don’t feel it was particularly successful as a commentary but I do like some of the shots on an esthetic level so I thought I’d post a couple anyway…. :)
