On Photography

One of those things I invariably found in some of the long lost film were some long lost self portraits. Upon reading an essay in Susan Sontag's "On Photography" (you can see the book actually in the frame). I was for some reason inspired to write some ridiculous text on the first piece of material I could find (a fexEx envelope) and to proceed to take pictures of myself in the bathroom with a NikonF3 and 24mm. I had some point I was trying to prove or disprove or who knows what, but it's long forgotten by now!

You can see on the contact sheet, that at one point I even held a container of salt in front of myself. I don't know what point I intended, but the point that I think I made is that: I am no artist.
