Background & Solution –
A series of spontaneous self portraits taken over seven years.
The pictures are an immediate unrehearsed response to a space, with no emotional consideration at the time of shooting but they have become deeply emotive as a series. As well as showing the physical journey of my body over time, they also reveal an emotional one. Each picture candidly portraying a mark in the calendar of my life.
