"Inevitably doing all this #photographictherapy #research you reach a point of further #selfevaluation
I hate my photo taken.. I reluctantly relent to the odd photo and #sillyselfies so there is a physical record of me for my children when they need it!
But I know how therapeutic photography is! If I intend to share that with the world then perhaps I should experience that to its full extent!
My hatred of #selfportraits is perhaps something I should better understand and even challenge.
I had talked about exploring my #fortitudeproject further by doing some #selfportraits
Perhaps its time I stop talking about it and do it!"
This is an ongoing project that will be added to!
Until recently my most explored means of self-expression including the odd "selfies" and #photosketching was those on social media such as instagram, a means to visually express my thoughts ideas & feelings. My adversity to the idea of spending real time creating a self-portrait has clouded my judgement of an untapped area of self-expression. I intend to explore this, though I have found myself procastinating due to those society induced stigmas and judgement, but I will not conform!
