Really looking in the mirror can be a pretty scarey thing – so much of the time we unconsciously prepare ourselves before we look. We get the angle right, run our hand through our hair, perhaps tilt our head a particular way.
But take all that away, and just look – at the colours, shadows, lines, shapes – and you start to see something quite different.
A bit less familiar, and a whole lot less flattering.
I’ve done a series of self portraits over the last week and I have to say this is the only one I’m prepared to put “out there” on publc view! Gives you an idea of what the others are like huh?
