Exposure as Identity

leave a comment »

As part of my research, I took self-portraits in order to study the act of self-imaging. It is a historical practice in art, and Egon Schiele, well-known for his expressive self-portraits, summed it up in a letter to Oskar Reichel in 1911 (Steiner. 2004:p12)

“When I see myself entire, I shall have to see myself and know what I want, not only to know what is happening within me but also to what extent I have the ability to look, what means are mine, what enigmatic substances I am made of and of how much of that greater part that I perceive and have hitherto perceived in myself.”
