Old box self

In cleaning and reorganizing my office, I’ve been going through some old boxes of photographs and I came across these ones.

My first self portraits (of many more that were taken in the years after) I took for a school assignment over 20 years ago. It was in my first year photography at the Royal Academy of Arts here in Antwerp.  The first time living on my own,  just a lot of firsts and discoveries really.

The great thing about these self portraits is how you can see yourself change and yet being much the same over the years. And even more lovely is you see the willingness to experiment and be free in your photography.
