Self Portraits: Ghost Parade

Self portraits have been a way for me to explore my evolving relationship with my own body. These works also allow aspects of formal experimentation that do not have an impact on any one else's self-image. When I work with a portrait subject I am acutely aware of the extent to which I hold their ego in my hands. In working with my own body, I can go in directions that would be difficult to ask of another person. 

Through the combination of these two streams - looking at others, and looking at myself - I have evolved and deepened my sense of connection to other human beings.
