I have a feeling that my photography has lacked direction for a while, I felt very inspired today, I was looking through my Francesca Woodman book, her images are so beautiful. I decided to debark on my own set of self portraits, I shot a roll of fp4+and pushed it to 200.(processed in Rodinal 1+50 for 20 minutes) Despite this because I was shooting in my very dark house long exposures were needed. Ideas have been flowing through my head for a couple of nights now. Anyway these ideas will develop and I will shoot more self portraits.

I used a Yashica Mat 124G basically because it is my only camera with a self timer, and I did use some lighting from an old cheapo modeling tungsten light.

Here they are the first one I envisioned with candles all around so will perhaps work on this more

The second I will explore more perhaps with a series of pictures that deal with fire and the body. I watched a program last night that showed colour film footage from the 1930’s in Mexico, it was a really interesting show. There was one scene where a woman basically cooked/burned a lizard alive. This picture I believe is partly inspired by that image, it was quite disturbing to me.

There is no camera trickery digital or otherwise going on here, its real fire on my face. (BUT DON’T WORRY I AM FINE!)

I have also been inspired by the work of Leanne Surfleet 

She makes the most beautiful self portraits, I basically spent today looking through her images. Imo she is up there with some of the best!

It was really nice to be working with lovely big square format on the negatives, when they were hanging up in my high tech drying area(my shower) It brought a smile to my face and I couldn’t wait to scan them!

Anyway more to come I think.
