Move over, selfies. The art of taking one's self portrait has been a long-running tradition, and if you want to raise your "selfie" game, why not relearn the rubrics and depth of self-portraiture?
Everyone does it. Painters do it, photographers do it. Even musicians and writers do it. What sets the artist apart from the mere selfie-taker is the artist has pretty much thought out how he would want to be seen in an image or artwork. Believe it or not, many photographers and painters interpret their "self-portraiture" in surrealism or abstraction.
While in the technical sense, self-portraiture is a likeness of your physical being, but firstly, it should be a reflection of your soul. Watch this inspiring video from Ted Forbes.

The human face has been a never-ending study since the beginning of art history. Recognition has been part of the study, and mostly, it's the most defining, prominent figures of public life that are under artistic examinations. Photography does it as well.
Collage has been around since the invention of paper in China, and it has evolved throughout history. The earliest and most familiar point is when Surrealists and Dadaists began adapting the technique in photography. Here, we have today's trends on contemporary collage.
Contrary to popular belief, photo editing has been around since the early days of photography. The only difference is it's been used sparsely. There' a reason why the majority of old photographs are more appealing.
Irene was born and raised in Larnaca, Cyprus. She studied Audio and Video Production in Cyprus and Photography in Italy. She returned to Cyprus and worked as a photojournalist for many years, until 2011, when she decided to open up a little photography shop and introduce Lomography to the locals.
