Most portraits feature the subject’s face. If you’ve been following my 25 @ 25 project, you know my self-portraits generally do not feature my face. (If you’d like to find out the story behind 25 @ 25, check out the first post here) That trend continues with this post. I notice that I tend to feature my legs and shoes…we do so much with them!
About two weeks ago, I fell on a gravel path. Thankfully, no bones were broken, but the fall left a pretty gnarly bruise. I took a picture of the injury as a reminder that pain is worthy of art. It’s also a reminder for me to slow down!
Decided to go a bit rocker for this shoot. I got a leather jacket not too long ago and was eager to break it in. What better way to do that than wear it for a photoshoot? This is definitely my favorite self-portrait thus far.
