I like the reflection 35hunter makes on selfportraits. I like the idea of consciously shooting oneself with a specific purpose, rather than just looking attractive to social networks. And I also think it’s valuable to think about it in retrospective, to review past selfportraits understanding how we’ve changed the percepction of our own and how that is reflected in the way we’re depicted in our own photos.
From time to time I like to take a real close-up portrait where I can see all the detail in my face, the wrinkles, the stains, the expression derived from the shape of the eyes and the mouth. I like to look at them trying to locate which of my experiences caused them, as if there was a correlation between event and skin mark.
It’s about time I take another one of those.
