The Art of The Self Portrait

A famous motif that artists from all times return to over and over again is the self-portrait. Inspired by the many self-portraits I've come into contact with over the years as well as the gallery containing the Thomas Struth photographs of people in museum spaces, I embarked on a project photographing myself in various galleries that I grew to know and love over the course of working here at AIC this summer. Enjoy!
