But mostly, the most annoying thing with self-portraits is that people think you’re self-absorbed. That you want to show the world how pretty you are. People who say this don’t really get photography. When I use myself in photography I play a role. I dress up. I act a special mood. It’s like theatre for me. It’s not actually a picture of me.
It’s not about me me me.
And last but not least, if you take a lot of self-portraits it’s probably just because you don’t have a lot of friends who are willing to pose for you. It’s as simple as that.
