What a self-portrait says about yourself?

With me, there is no doubt - I don't take myself seriously!

Photo by saidseni

I never really got the thing about artists and self-portraits. I’m not photogenic at all, I hate when people take pictures of me (and now they upload it on Facebook, I don’t even now how many times I’m there and how awful I look!).

But because I’m always taking pictures, I’m never in the picture. I have albums of travels I’ve made where I don’t show in one picture. If I ever lose my memory, there is no prove I was there.

So, one day, I ended up taking pictures of myself. And that’s when I understood why artists do self-portraits. They really tell a lot about you even if you don’t get it immediately.

Looking at my self-portraits, I found a big truth about me – I don’t take myself seriously!

What yours say about you?

    Checking my self-portraits, I realized I do not go handsome in the photos. With all the sadness of the world, I told my grandmother: "I am not photogenic at all." With the wisdom of years, she said: "Not that you're not photogenic, you're really uglier than you think"
