Self portrait, 2019
Lately I've been thinking a lot about why I started to take self portraits, why I still continue to work with my own body and why I hate to be in front of someone else's camera. I still remember the first time I stepped in front of my own camera and how powerful it felt to have the option to present myself to the outside world and to myself exactly how I wanted to. How it allowed me to be vulnerable without speaking even a single word. I guess at its core taking self portraits is a selfish thing for me, a way to try to fall more in love with myself every time the shutter clicks.
