Today in Uni we had a lesson on photography and portraits!
I strongly disagree with the media’s portrayal of the ‘perfect’ man and woman; it is the root cause of many disorders & insecurities, and promotes an ‘ideal’ that is fundamentally unattainable.
I wanted to create something that is far from the media’s ‘ideal’ portrait, something that is real and human and good. What better way to do this than portray someone that I have spent most of my life criticising?
So, it light of all this, here is my Self Portrait.
