About This Photo
There are many kinds of self-portraits: pretty ones, honest ones, revealing ones, ones that are about the light, or the angle, or the emotion. I don’t think one is necessarily better than the other. What I will say is that I think so many people are afraid to even look at themselves. But you are art. That’s how I see it. You are worthy of being photographed. You are worthy of your own attention, whether you’re fat, thin, curvy, full lips or no, thick hair or fine, acne or none, young or old. All of those things are beautiful, even when you have a hard time seeing that beauty. So go out there and take a selfie. To me, it’s an empowering thing.
