I’m really enjoying February Photo Fest and I’m endlessly impressed with myself for keeping up. It’s been fun to take new pictures as well as reprise and re-edit some old favourites. I’ve been thinking more about voyeurism and private (vs public) exhibitionism. The photo below was posted last summer but I changed the editing to suggest looking through a keyhole (peephole? gloryhole?) since the original pic was shot and cropped to feel a bit voyeuristic. I wanted to see if I could effectively objectify myself in my own self portrait. I’m pleased with the results and I’d love to hear in the comments if you think I’ve conveyed that feeling.
