Tagged: strata of the self

So . . .

I didn’t post an image here today. I did, however, on the new blog that is a collaboration between Richard Guest and myself, Between Scarlett and Guest
We are having a conversation in pictures, image by image.

I also posted a beautiful image called ‘Hope’ by Sarah Treanor on my other blog, a collaborative project on self portraits, strata of the self.

And here’s a non-sequitur, because I have this song on the brain:

Ok, here comes another plug for the blog about self portraits that I curate.
Here’s the definition of self portrait that I use for that blog:

“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.”

It’s called strata of the self.
And yeah, ‘selfie’ is a dirty word.
