3: Self Portraiture

The following images are self-portraits, made without particular regard to their quality, but rather with the emphasis on emotional and therapeutic enquiry. I worked with reference to Cristina Nunez's Self-Portrait Experience methodology, looking at her three categories: 
 
- ME (emotions, skills, character representation, body, places, roots)
- ME AND THE OTHER (relationship self-portraits)
- ME AND THE WORLD (self-portraits with our groups, the unknown community, the media and art)
 
 
It was difficult to narrow down my choices to three portraits, but I've chosen ones that I think most accurately represent me, rather than fragments of my thought processes. Under each photograph, I've written a supporting statement about the process and my underpinning thoughts.

These are the images I ultimately rejected, but I like each of them for the reasons stated underneath.
