Tundra Black and white nude self portraits.
is a series which grew out of a few experimental self portraits I took some time ago. I only recently decided to expand upon these early attempts and make them into a full blown series. These images are an exploration of my sense of self. They are an attempt at glimpsing the true nature of myself through the subconcsious flow which guides my lens. I have chosen to make them nudes as an expression of vulnerability. What little we can ever expect to know about our true selves certainly cannot be discovered without a willingness to be vulnerable and a willingness to feel deeply even in the face of scrutiny. In a sense, these photos are an exercise in letting go, letting go of my fears and my fixations, letting go of my misconceptions, and finally letting go of myself.
