Why the self-portraits? Some may believe they're a product of our narcissistic culture. They may be right. I don't know.
I do them because I want to feel what it's like for people on the other side of my lens.
I do them because I'm on a journey of embracing myself and my body the way it is.
I do them because I want to model for my children what self-acceptance looks like.
And, well, many famous artists made self-portraits. If it's good enough for them. It's good enough for me.
