Self Portraits as Me

The “Self Portraits as Me” series is an examination of identity and relationships. I ask other artists and community members to think of an idea for a self portrait, and once they have one we work together to create that portrait using my body as a replacement for theirs. Part performance and part photograph this series requires becoming close enough to another person to nearly become them. Crossing boundaries of self and other is difficult though, and the portraits often show the discomfort resulting in blurring the boundaries between two people.
