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.

    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.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
