SELF PORTRAITURE

Self-portraits have been done for ages. When painters began to value their talents and skills as more than just common work, and emergence of self-portraits begun. Now, they are done for a number of reasons. Self-portraits can be important if you need to have a professional photo of yourself done in your style for a business card or website. But they are also a great tool for self-discovery though fine art. Some photographic artists have done nothing but self-portraits. Artistic self-portraits can be a reflection of ones outer self, or inner, or can be a critique on outside elements, such as society.  Cindy Sherman is a great example of someone who criticized the Hollywood movie industry through her own self-portrait work.
