When someone suggested that I make my 100th download a series of self portraits it gave me a nudge to do something that I’ve always wanted to do. Today I started that process. Fuck me. It’s so daunting.

Not only is the physical process quite challenging setting up a camera and working out focus and framing etc then using the timer and getting in the shot and being in the right pose, but I’m finding it really emotionally challenging.

It’s no secret that I have a rather tortured relationship with my body and my body image but exploring that in photos as well as trying to take decent photos is incredibly hard.

The project won’t all be tortured “I hate my body” stuff I promise. There are ideas forming for all sorts of shoots and vibes. It’s the time and extra effort that will be tough but fingers crossed it will be therapeutic.
