"A self-portrait is self-expression. You can find almost anything in a self-portrait, because it can also be art. It can reflect the self, it can be a reflection of the soul. Symbolism is important. The emotions conveyed are important.

There are different kinds of self-portraits. Selfies as self-portraits mean different things to different people. Some don’t really take any at all, whereas others capture hundreds during the day. In those cases selfies serve to communicate moods and reactions to situations.

A self-portrait doesn’t have to be a picture of a face, however. Anything that captures and reflects the personality and the self can be one. Background and the surroundings also play an important role in this expression.

In this exhibition we wish to express our own viewpoints to ourselves and to self-portraiture."

Welcome!
