Where?


Where do you take self-portraits?

This is closely linked to the 'When do you...?' question, but I'll try to answer it differently.

I take my self-portraits wherever I find myself at any given moment in time. The place I am emotionally is often more interesting than where I am geographically, but not always.

It's generally a fusion of place inside and outside my head, and the result is a permanent record of what happens when the twain meet.

And although they are self-portraits, in that they are always of me, or some part of me at least, there is often someone else involved. Either I'm with someone when my brain taps me on the shoulder, or it's actually someone else taking the shot who then passes it on to me. Which only adds to the profundity of the moment I think. As here.
