Vivian Maier Inspired Self Portraits

Me and Jon Reflected Twice
Me and Jon Reflected Twice

Jon and I stopped at an antique/junk market today and instead of looking for things to buy we were snapping Vivian Maier inspired self -portraits in every reflective surface we could find.   Him with his big expensive camera and me with my iphone.   All these self portraits are about identity.  When I take a self portrait I’m saying “this is who I am” and not letting other people define me.   It’s a really fun and creative thing to do, revealing too.  I’d encourage anyone to try it.

  1. Love this post and your pix – Jon’s too – I hate pictures of me but am gonna try taking them myself and see how it goes – thanks for the inspiration – esp like your boots photo 🙂

    1. Try it Brenda. There’s something liberating about it. I try to look at myself in photos and not judge how I look but say to myself: so that’s what I look like.
