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?
