Self portrait

Edit this
Day 2 – visual diary by Theo Stanley @theo_stanley Terminal light. Self portrait. It’s annoying how the word selfie has muddied the amazing history of self portrait work in photography. Self portraits can be documents of age and time and place, but also can be more conceptual interior views, searching for equivalents in images that open up in reading and pose more questions than answers. I use myself as I am always available to myself, and obsessively watch and study light as fleeting phenomenon. I started a hashtag #terminallight for this idea of ‘last light’ as well as #theostanleyself for this exploration of self (not selfie damn it all) through photography.
