I made this image yesterday expressly for a bio page on a new collective blog that will be launched very soon.
More details later.

      Thanks, Harriod. I like your description. I’m quite taken with the blur plus grain thing at the moment – I like the atmosphere it creates (plus it’s good for hiding all sorts of things such as wrinkles! 😀 ) To me this looks like me and doesn’t look like me at the same time.

        It certainly is atmospheric, Ashley. As to what ‘looks like me’, then I’ve never yet seen a photo of myself that does – only my reflection in a mirror does that, because of course, that is all I can ever know as a real-time image of me. But apparently, it’s all tied up with the psychology of (self) perception too, and something weird happens in our brain when we look in a mirror in real-time. o_O

    Oh Ashley, I adore this!
    To me it exudes intelligence and a lovely, gentle humour.
    More collaboration, how wonderful! I feel a bit like I’ve had my head stuck in the sand – I should really work on extracting it!
    : )

      Well, that comment is a lovely one!
      Yes, I have my fingers in a lot of (vegan) pies at the moment. I’ve only just got around to rebooting ‘strata of the self’. I really like collaborations – ones I’m involved in and otherwise. It would be very nice to see more posts from you – I’ve missed them.

What do you think?
