This semester in my graphic design class, my professor gave us a project to create a self-portrait. The challenging part of this assignment was to create the self-portrait without using a picture of ourselves. We had to use objects that represented our past, present and future. I have to admit that I found it interesting as I went through the design process. As I sketched out all my ideas, I found that I was most connected to the places I travelled and my Italian heritage (and of course my photography). Throw in my love for fashion and my self-portrait was starting to look good. After two weeks working on the assignment, I felt like I was able to capture myself in this frame. I hope you enjoy the final piece below.
