Photo at weekend (2010, Weeks 32-33)

After some delay, I’d like to post new weekend photos. I’ve already written about my interest in self-portraits.

Since Albrecht Dürer began a series of painted self-portraits in 1493 that provided insight into the changing nature of his character and beliefs over a lifetime, artists have expressed numerous inner concerns through self-portraits. Self-portraits allow artists to show awareness of their own appearance and traits, producing evidence of the intricacies of their lives. … Self-portraits can be projections of the self that represent you as you are, or they can present hidden aspects of the self, sometimes revealing a secret self. (from Light and lens: photography in the digital age by Robert Hirsch, MAKING PORTRAITS: WHO AM I AND WHO ARE YOU?)

So I cannot pass over the self-portraits by Czekoladowe-Ciastko (“Chocolate Cake” in Polish is the nickname chosen by Kamila from Poland), especially taking into account their popularity on deviantART.
