Self portrait work has always been important to me. I started when I was a photography student at 16 and have never stopped. For me it offers a different perspective unto myself. I think it is very necessary work one that enables a person to look deep down within themselves and take a good look. It is not a question of vanity but of curiosity ... a desire to delve within. These are a few a took last night in my painting studio with one of the paintings I am working on - altered in photoshop - Now I want to do some journal work with them.
