From the author:
"One afternoon, I was watching an interview with the Danish film director, Lars von Trier. He mentioned an anecdote about how he had once hidden under a table in order to avoid meeting David Lynch. Because it had English subtitles, I took screenshots and sent them to my partner, thinking she would enjoy it. When I flipped through the images, I recognized that the scene converted into stills made the story funnier. Not only that, because of the captions, I could literally see sound. For most people, that means nothing, but for a photographer, that was a revelation.
“'Self-Portrait' is a collection of stories about my past mistakes in life. It is a book but, once opened, becomes a video that must be consumed outside of its normal context. What look like screenshots are actually photographs taken on-site with a still camera; and the anecdotes presented are not remotely related to what was being said at the time of documentation. The multiple contradictions, layered upon one another, escalate the drama and comedy with the turning of each page."
