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.
I love collaborating with and photographing other artists. This goddess is a psychic energy healer and makeup artist. I met her a few weeks ago at The Meadow (great chocolate and salt shop and very worth checking out if you don't know it!). Today we got to know each other a little better and she made me rose tea and let me photograph her with her crystal ball. Her backyard is filled with this beautiful tall grass. The sun was shining - perfection!
