I always believed that taking selfies or self-portraits, talking about your life in your own imagery was a narcissistic way to talk about yourself. I believed that there could not be a more selfish idea of showing yourself off. Well, it was this shell that I had to crack and destroy until I realised I had one around me. Selfies are not a vanity. They are a  kind of declaration that both the see-er and the seen - which is exactly the same person - deserves to be seen.

I would never talk about myself; I did.

I would never photograph my habits, my belongings, my own room; I did.

I would never photograph myself; I did.

This is a never-ending process that never will be talked about as ‘progressED’.

I progress.

I continuously do.
