The assignment was to create a self-portrait and a portrait. The idea was to explore yourself and one other person exposing one roll of film for each. These are Alea Friel’s images. The ones of her little brother are soft and beautiful. I liked how she portrayed a relaxed mood with her self-portrait and the fact that she is hidden somehow. Many images were good from this assignment. It is always one of the fun ones once students get beyond the idea that they don’t like pictures of themselves. I tell them they can be a shadow, reflection, body part, etc. It is not always about a head shot with the perfect hair, the perfect smile….
