I was given a book of 500 self-portraits for Christmas and it got me thinking about how and why the artists rendered themselves the way they did. I wonder what they were trying to say and what they were feeling. How did their self-portrait reflect their society? How would our self-portrait reflect our society? These are just some of the questions that I’ve asked myself as I examined the book. So for what it’s worth here is 501.
