SELF - PORTRAITS
Starting in 2011 I began to photograph myself after being fed up with the images I was getting back from my job as a fashion model. The photos I would get back never seemed to capture what I felt like I was portraying when I was in front of the camera.
What began as an outlet to explore modeling and performance on my own terms quickly transitioned into an intense exploration of the self. My self portraits have gone through many phases from instantaneous to existential and now conceptual. Each phase has been an important part in understanding my own relationship with presentation and performance and it's relationship with the vessel and expression of the inner self.
