How You See Me / The Space I Fill In a Room

“How You See Me / The Space I Fill In a Room” Self Portrait Series, Birmingham, Alabama, 2017.  

In making this series with the help of William Anderson I think about the friction that my presence can evoke in any given space, the discomfort I can spark, my personal compensation, my insecurity, and the false perceptions projected on me that I carry on my back. Self portraiture is an opportunity for self representation and healing. What do I evoke? What can I consciously revoke? What is in my power to invoke?
