A photographer’s most reliable subject is his or her self. By turning the camera on oneself, the photographer is brought out from behind their lens, exploring or manipulating their identity. There is a performative aspect to self-portraiture. The photographer invites judgement and critique on not only their artistic message, but also their appearance and demeanor. For this online exhibition, Don’t Take Pictures seeks self-portraits that provide insight into the “second self” that appears when artist becomes subject.

The exhibition will be published online from February 20 — May 21.

Deadline: February 17
