The Concept: The single biggest limitation to photography is that a two-dimensional image can never accurately represent its four-dimensional subject (counting time). When prompted to take a self portrait, I decided that any traditional portrait would be fake and untrue. My solution is using multiple exposure photography and drawings to complete the compositions. In this way, I am able to expose many facets of myself, inside and out, in a single photograph. 
 
The Process: Using only traditional photography processes, I took these self portraits in a light-tight room with a cable release and a flashlight. I printed each one, then drew the additions on transperancies, and reprinted them to achieve these results.
