Throwback Thursday

Joe-dining room-2A self-portrait circa 1982. This is yet another Photo Elective shot. I’m not sure if this was to finish off a roll of film or was part of an assignment. I’ve heard other people from art school mention a self-portrait project, and this may have been mine. There were a couple of similar shots contiguous to this frame so this may have been part of an assignment rather than a film killer.

Admittedly, it’s not a terribly interesting or flattering self-portrait, but it’s interesting to me to see part of my family’s dining room where my family had so happily broken bread on countless occasions. Sadly, that space is long gone and in it’s place is a convenience store’s parking lot.

Also of interest at least to me is my hair. I was about 20 years old here and my hairline was going from receding into a full retreat. The forehead was a five-head and headed to dome city. It’s certainly more than I have nowadays, but not by much.

    LOL, good one, and not embarrassed at all, right?

    It could have been worse. Nowadays people take terabytes of images they should have thought over before they shot and shared with the world. I had to shoot and process this myself. Impulsivity wasn’t really part of the process back then.
