Self-portrait 04/01/13

I was thinking about taking self-portraits day by day. I like the idea, but it might be boring. Anyway, I'm taking only nude self-portraits. They allow me to explore myself through photography... There's a point of view that "with the few noteworthy exceptions by men such as Albrecht Dürer and F. Holland Day, the male nude self-portrait is a new theme in art, one explored primarily in twentieth century photography due to avant-garde art forms and the rise of a queer culture." (see artcataloging.net/glc/qcan061/qcan061f.html). I think that portraits of men and women in the nude focus the attention on their personality "and not irrelevant matters like how their shirts are buttoned, how their skirts are being draped, and whether they are wearing the most stylish kind of hat." (cf. www.artrenewal.org/articles/2012/Nudity/Nudity_Virtue_or_...)
