self portrait 

My approach to this project was to invert the theme of ‘self portrait’ from an external expression of the physical self, to an exploration of the internal structures of the human form. The process of building an ‘artists impression’ of the muscle structures, veins and bones provided allowed me to better understand the nature of my own physicality.
