There was this self-portraiture class at ICP and I've never photographed myself so I was like, f*ck it let me just take this class and get it over with. But then it turned into so much more than a school credit. I began to learn about myself and my body more than I ever have, and in ways that I've never seen myself. I hid my private parts from the camera; I felt like someone was watching me, but it was just me, I was alone. I had to get used to seeing myself naked and realizing that being naked is natural and beautiful. It’s much harder than documenting someone else. I just started photographing the elderly nude, and it’s like, I haven’t really photographed that many people nude so I’m still learning myself, how to be comfortable around someone when they’re naked, and you’re not.
