The story behind Self Portrait 2012
I took a series of photos in about 2004 where I intended to look like I was ready to fight somebody. The intention was to create something different within the portrait genre. I entered this in the 2013 Archibald Prize and it didn’t tickle the judges fancy. I don’t blame them.
