Photographer's Note

This photo is from the Sidewalk Arts Festival a year and a half ago. When I photographed this artist I complimented her on her "self portrait." She looked up at me and informed me that the work was not a self portrait and showed me the photo she was working from. Sure enough, the painting was based off that reference, but various aspects of her own feature showed up, not only in her reference photo, but also reinforced in her drawing as well. This just goes to show that we tend to place ourselves in whatever we create and great work by its very nature tends to be self portraiture, wether we intend it or not.
