The Self Portrait Experience

by Cristina Nuñez

2008

Nuñez provides a self-portrait method of photographer to various “subjects” (herself, teens, women with HIV, a dog, etc…). She started doing self-portraits as a form of self-therapy and exploration. There are also self-portrait workshops, performances, events, and a blog, which is the central hub for all the portraiture.

“Art’s main goal is social. With THE SELF-PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE, anybody can use their own pain –instead of avoiding it- to build a work which is useful for mankind. THE SELF-PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE allows anybody to explore unknown aspects of the self and experience the intense creative process, under the artist’s guidance.” (From webpage above; click on the title above.)
