today, during my photo crit, we had a guest lecturer/critique helper (is that the right word?) and I was showing a self portrait and he kept referring to it as “her” and finally I said “it’s a self portrait” and he looked at the photo and back at me a few times in confusion
I don’t look anything like I do in self portraits which is amusing and also frustrating sometimes. we discussed today in class how it’s a persona, how I remove myself from myself in order to photograph it
Thierry Cohen thought of an ingenious way to show what the night sky would look like without light pollution.
He starts by photographing the stars above less populated areas that fall on the same latitudes. He then replaces the polluted skies above the cities with pristine views of what they could be seeing every night.
