After taking pictures of other people for 15 years, I am learning the art of the self portrait.

This has been very challenging as a modest person.

I have been studying the work of some artists who specialize in the self portrait and there seems to be a strength that can be found in distorting your image. Perhaps if I study myself this way through photographs, it may ease my body image issues.

These are a selection of the first images that I am prepared to share. For some I used wire and a pane of glass to modify my features. I was pleased with the ability of a simple line to transform the features of my face.
