The Photographer in the Frame

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.

This exhibition is on view from February 20 — May 21, 2019. See our previous exhibitions.
