This is NOT a stock image, and you many NOT use this
Ive been taking portraits of myself for a very long time and they have become intensely intwined with my own sense of identity and self worth.
When I am feeling great about myself, i take photos. when I am feeling bad about myself, I take photos.
Sometimes I use costumes and make-up and props as a form of escapism, and sometimes I like to strip down and confront myself with a very bare subject.
Its a funny thing when I am so used to editing and changing myself into an idea, often I will look in the mirror and instinctively start to liquify, dodge and burn myself.
This year I have put a lot of focus into shooting stock images. So while Ive been in the studio loads and loads, this is the first studio self portrait.
