I think self portraits are a way for me to share myself in a creative way. I've struggled with self esteem issues a lot throughout my life. The way I take pictures today allows me to create an image of myself that I enjoy and that I'm proud of. I think sometimes, when you use your body in a creative way, you forget about your insecurities because you're more focused on your creative goal. It makes me feel more in control of my image, which is something I can't really do in daily life.
