365 Day 105 - Self portrait

16 Apr 2014 6:46PM   Views : 360 Unique : 308

Back to my work on People and Place for this one or to be precise, an exercise in one of the recommended texts for the course, Train your Gaze by Roswell Angier. Chapter 2 of this book is called 'Self portrait/no face' in which the author discusses issues of identity but without being able to see the main means by which we are all identified, i.e. our faces. I didn't particularly set out to take this photograph but noticed this long distorted shadow when I was walking with the sun behind me. Not very flattering but hey, it could have been worse if I had chosen to photograph my feet!
