Does Bliss Show?
A self-portrait project I embarked on for Now:Here:This. As I stated in the weekly entries that went with the photos, "Portraiture, but not portraiture. It's all been done, right? -- what's not been done? Bad snapshots, missed flash shots, color shifts are my favorite pics in rolls. But trying to intend the perfect accidental moments to paint onto some emulsion...hmm, difficult with portraits. After angels, not ghouls -- most of those shots end up ghouls. Or maybe to photograph bliss by being there at the right instant..."
Each week stated what is the most important thing on my mind right now, which for this series was usually about the portrait under way, for example:
