Susan Silas. the self-portrait sessions; Yaddo session, 2011.

Description:
the self-portrait sessions are suites of self-portraits in which my two selves inhabit the same frame. Each image juxtaposes a stark self-portrait in the foreground against a softer idealized portrait reflected in the mirror; a literal reminder of the divide between one's self and one's self-perception.

Medium:
Photography
