Self-portrait

Self-Portrait: on casted Light and Shadow on paper

 

The Self-Portrait series turns the photograph into an object by physically transforming its shadow. Light is used to create objects without shadows, shadows are cut out from photographs, cut out shadows are filled with blood, images are turned into photograms, and shadows are drawn into the photographs. I expressed my personal memories and experiences through the physical manipulation of the shadows in these photographs.
