Kimiko Nishimoto learned how to use a camera for the first time at the age of 71 and even furthered her skills by taking courses on digital editing to manipulate her images. While she mostly focuses on still life and nature photography, she has a series of hilarious self-portraits involving random costumes and staged falls. More images below!
Artist Ian Ingram explores the art of the self-portrait, working with charcoal, pastel, ink, watercolour, as well as less conventional things like beeswax, string, and butterfly wings. A graduate of the University of Chicago, Ingram now lives and works in Sayulita, Mexico. Check out more of his incredible work below.
Bryan Lewis Sauders has been documenting his experiences with different drugs and intoxicants in the form of expressive self-portraits. Each drawing was created under the influence, and he says he’s “suffered mild brain damage” from the experiment. Below are 50 of his self-portraits.
Jeff Harris has taken a self-portrait everyday for the past 12 years. Now I have to admit when I first saw heard about this project I dismissed it as there are a lot of these projects going on, but when I finally got around to watching this video I was floored. The photos document his battle with cancer, the loss of use of his leg, run-ins with celebrities (where he has them take his portrait), all the incredible highs and lows of his life.
