Double Exposure: Assemble the Empire

We managed to take these on my very last day there at the school yard where we spent way too much of our early 20’s in. I know you’re thinking “why did you hang around an elementary school in your 20s?” ….well for 5 years it was the only thing in between my apartment and her’s and we really liked midnight walks. It’s pretty hard to imagine that I went from living less than a block away from her┬áto seeing her twice in 5 years. Have to admit I miss her face so much, but going through and editing these photos really made me happy. The perfect birthday gift for me would be to spend it with her, but another year passes and that’s just not in the cards. Hope you enjoyed these, and if you want to see some non-double exposure shoots I took of her I posted some awhile back, here!

52 Weeks of Self-Portraits

11/52 Alternative Personality

dada double exposure self-portraitToday’s self-portrait features one of my mixed media masks. The mask was made with a self-portrait photograph, it’s hard to tell it me since it looks more monster than myself but that’s what I love about it. The whole image is really inspired by a portrait of my best friend that I was working on last night. The portrait was in color but I had converted it to black and white and I kept thinking how I don’t shoot very much in black and white and thought I’d try it out for this week’s 52 Week photo. I’m happy with the results but wish I had more chances this week to take photos. Montreal needs to stop raining, it’s no fun.

Inspiration:

“I got supplies, you got demands
I got the sense that you can’t understand
I got supplies, you got the demand
I got the feeling you don’t give a damn

You can have it all
Anything you want
You can have it all
Everything I’ve got”
