@eylul i love your thoughts as well as the picture! it is an interesting question, is it a portrait? with the light test context,zero in a way it can be seen as a picture of light in which you are a background figure..
i draw a lot self portraits, and it's a very thematically wrought area i think. it's very personal, yet it feels removed from yourself in a way selfies aren't.
@vivaizix Added to this I think is the loaded question around how much photography is documentation of truth vs how much it is a creation of image. I know it isn't a very original or new conversation but it was also contributing to the thought process of that caption.
Thank you for the thoughtful comment. :)
