the self-portrait sessions, ongoing

the self-portrait sessions are suites of self-portraits in which my two selves inhabit the same frame. I have shot many different portfolios over time. The images above were shot in 2011.

A selection of photographs from the self-portrait sessions along with the video, untitled, 2011 were shown in a two-person exhibition with Joy Episalla at Momenta Art in Bushwick in 2014. A 116 page monograph was published on the occasion of that exhibition. the self-portrait sessions was shown at CB1Gallery in Los Angeles, in 2016 and at Studio 10 in Bushwick, in 2017.
