Self Portrait 1 by Carrie Roseman
This photograph is part of a long term self-portrait project that I started during David Alan Harvey and James Nachtwey’s LOOK3 workshop, aptly entitled “The Art of the Photographic Essay”. The subject of the essay that I would create eluded me until the start of the workshop. Really wanting to challenge myself, I decided to point the camera to myself, and create images that reflect this exciting time in my life. After having experienced some hardships over the last few years, I wanted to celebrate the good that is happening and show a beautiful hopefulness in this project. My goal was to create fine art photographs that hold a dreamlike quality and emit an ethereal feeling. I knew that I wanted to capture myself in a very artful way, and I feel that I really got into a groove when I made this picture. This photograph was the shining moment of the start of this self-portrait project.
