Daily Photo #586

A very rare self portrait.


Shot on Ilford XP5 and printed on Ilford papers for a University assignment circa 1998.

Linda is the "hand model" in this shot and is tearing a photo of me. As I suffer migraine/depression - the tearing of the image is quite symbolic. How pretentious am I?

Interesting shot. Was this taken before or after you became married?

It was taken around 6 years after we were married :)

Surprisingly it didn't take too many shots to get this right (I think I shot 1 roll of film for this portrait). I still have the contact sheet/thumbnails and different versions in negative form around here somewhere.
