I tend to go through waves where creativity comes easily, and then suddenly I struggle in emptiness. I have been working on this series of black and white self-portraits for about 18 months now, but just recently I am finding it harder and harder to create. Perhaps I need a break? Perhaps other activities got in the way? Perhaps this means the body of work is finally complete?
This is a simple idea I had and struggled to shoot. It is a man blindfolded, but more surreal than just that. Clearly, it was difficult to photograph myself while not having any sight, but the hard part was more in my facial expression. I spent days in the studio shooting this idea over and over. Finally, this single exposure had just the right look.
