Definitions of ‘self’ abound, and clash and overlap in various fields: psychology, science, religion, philosophy. There is also some disagreement as to what a ‘self portrait’ is.
For the purposes of this blog I am using the broadest possible definition of “self portrait”: regardless of medium, a piece is a self portrait if, by its author, it is considered representative of themselves, or of a part of themselves, and/but also those images where the author considers themself a model.
I’m personally thrilled that people are happy to share their work here.
Big thanks to all the contributors.
P.S. ‘selfie’ is a dirty word.
