Portfolio: Not mySelf: Not mySelf; 04 May 19

Contrary to popular assumption, and despite doing self-portraiture for my thesis, I absolutely hate being in front of the camera. So as an exercise to try and force myself into accepting myself in the photo, with all my flaws, I started a “side project” of just selfies. Most of them have been on my personal IG account, but I found it important to share this story. I’m continuing to do them, as much as I dislike it, since I do intend to work on more self-portraits for future projects. I suppose I’m just a glutton for punishment. This is my “coming out” photo.
