My year 2009 in Self-Portrait Shots


Ultimately, Photography is subversive, not when it frightens, repels, or even stigmatizes, but when it is pensive, when it thinks. - Roland Barthes

Another great thing about photography is that, as Barthes also said, it repeats what could never be repeated existentially. So, it allows me to turn back and look at the whole past year. I can now see all of my ups and downs, my successes, my mistakes, my experiments, my boredom, my whoredom, my moments of joy, some hard times, loads of good times. I can see the world with my eyes, once again. So, here I am. Looking back at the past year. This is my year 2009 in self portrait photographs. How about yours?

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    On the Beauty of Film: Mary Robinson

    When she was first featured on the Magazine in 2011, Mary Robinson's natural talent for photography was already evident. Her images made an impression on the Lomography Community even back then. Her work has evolved in the span of four years, but its quaint beauty remains.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Kamila K Stanley: Boundless Imaginarium

    For this young artist, photography is not just a tally of sights. Set in light or dusk, it is a record of sensations. Shared bliss and awe are as much part of the scenery as the clouds. There is a sense of flight even on land.

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
