If there if one thing I avoid photographing, it is self portraits. Whether it is because of the selfie flood around, the fact that I don't particularly like how I look or simply because it requires a different way of working with the camera, I usually don't turn the camera on myself .
And this worked fine.....until I realized that self portraits are exactly what is needed for a new personal project I started to work on. After ignoring this thought for a couple of weeks, this morning I ran out of excuses. No computer to work on, most of other tasks done, house is empty with the exception of Max the cat.
Camera on tripod, trying to be the most me I can be, in a robe and slippers I started the most unusual photo session I ever did.
Looking at the images, (at the ones I did not throw away) it is me that I see. Not just recognizing my body, but the gestures, the composition and light of the image. A multidimensional image of me that shows how I look, what I feel, how I express myself. Getting to know myself through the camera
