My project is a series of self-portraits, which enabled me to use my own tangible form as a means to create a narrative of my own experiences. For this I used a 10x8 camera on a long exposure. This long exposure time captures one moment in numerous different ways, blurring and distorting the mapping of my body. This essentially shows a more natural sense of self and personality. I wanted to find a way to explore my own body and to go beyond a mere detached interpretation of the external form. Within my photographs I am creating a performance of my own identity, whilst also attempting to reiterate that none of us are immortal, even though these photographs are.
