In the age of the ‘selfie’ what does it mean to take a portrait of oneself? Three artists based in photography who work with their own bodies have each created a self-portraiture series in which they explore and challenge the conventional aspects of portrait photography. Each series highlights a different struggle the artist faces throughout their day to day life including feminist issues, mental illness, and fear of inadequacy. Through each individual series these photographic artists strive to share their experience with others and seek comparison with viewers who may be struggling with some of the same issues.
