Added another new page to my portfolio — All the self portraits I’ve taken throughout the pandemic. A departure from my old work, but I still see a little bit of Old Me in these. Some from earlier this year I’ve never published anywhere before. But I’ve fallen in love with them after some time and space.
Sometimes I wonder if I will ever get back to where I was in terms of self portraits and what I’m willing to share with a wide audience. I still have such a bad taste in my mouth from my youthful “alt photographer” days, but I feel like I’m at least on the right path to putting myself back out there.
I have just sent off an application for a local artist workshop I will hopefully snag a spot in. Made an honest-to-God submission to a Portraits show sometime later this spring, too. Not sure if I’m ready for rejections this early in the year, but I’m feeling strangely optimistic. Wish me luck!
