My year 2009 in Self-Portrait Shots

27

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.

    The LC-A Celebrates its 30th Anniversary

    Believe it or not, the Lomo LC-A is turning 30 years old this June. That’s right, fellow Lomographers, it’s been three decades since the camera that started it all came into existence, and we think such a momentous occasion deserves a month-long celebration.
