Don’t Take Pictures is pleased to announce the results of our online exhibition, The Photographer in the Frame. Forty-five self-portrait photographs will be on view through May 21. Visit the exhibitions page to view the entire exhibition.
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 presents self-portraits that provide insight into the “second self” that appears when artist becomes subject.
Don’t Take Pictures holds free, quarterly calls for work for online exhibitions.
