ONE SELF PORTRAIT EVERY DAY in 2020 : 366
This is my last self-portrait for I AM STILL ALIVE and if there is any worth in it, I would like to dedicate the whole project to Francesca Woodman.
My idea is for this last photo to be a nude self-portrait. Klara and Katarina are still isolating upstairs and my only available assistant is dead against me taking my kit off and is refusing to have anything to do with it.
I used a natural density filter so to have 10 second exposures which would give it motion blur.
I thought that by making it b&w, grainy and blurry it might cover up things enough to not embarrass him but eventually decided to add “366” to be on the safe side.
As I stood naked in front of the camera I remember hoping that no neighbour would look out from a window or that anybody from the station behind me would notice. I loved the fact that I could see Emil so focused on playing Fortnite he was oblivious to what I was doing.
