This self portrait challenge has had a fairly small number of entries which is a little disappointing but it’s understandable. Taking photos for these challenges requires making extra effort and we all lead very busy lives but I do really enjoy seeing what people do for them.

There is only 5 days or so to get your entries in for the challenge so as a little bit of inspiration I’m sharing the work of Lars Stephan whose self portraits flooded the internet a few years ago. They were bold, raw and honest. Lars wanted to experiment with shooting people and found himself to be the most available model. If you want to check out a whole lot of Lars’ self portraits in one place, check out the tumblr Fuck Yeah Lars Stephan.

Clearly I’m not expecting all of you to take such challenging images, nor as nude. Feel free if you have the time but it’s not a requirement.
