Selfie in the ancient times

Selfie in the ancient times

I read an interesting article this morning  by Michele Smargiassi. It throw me back to my psychology researches in portraiture that I have been doing for several years and when it was not fashionable to use the term ‘psychology’ in anything. I myself portray me in this category except for the fact that I have been doing it since I was young when I did not yet know why I did it before someone called it “selfie” and after great men in history like Artemisia Gentileschi, Gustave Coubert (see his series of “desperate portraits”), Francis Bacon, Leonardo Da Vinci, Caravaggio Andy Warhol painted or shot self-portraits, and this is only a tiny examples of those who used the “selfie” in the past. Man always needed to have a dialogue with the image of the self as a testify to his presence on earth, well aware that the momentary moment of fixing himself on a support would have immortalized him forever, power that he did not have if not on a support he chose.

Surreal mind, Surreal works

“If people are wise, we then have to be crazy; also because, like the great Shakespeare said, if the crazy seriously thinks to be wise, in fact is the wise that knows for sure to be crazy.” Carl William Brown   These days I’m shooting some very surreal works. I like to create something that’s in my head. Only in my head. Including my crazy figure. Because Photography is a wonderful stage to free our demons. Very soon I’ll be updating all the news. Thanks for being there 😉 “Se gli altri sono saggi, noi allora dobbiamo per forza essere pazzi; anche perché, come diceva il grande Shakespeare, se il folle pensa seriamente di essere saggio, in realtà è il saggio che sa per certo di essere folle.” Carl William Brown   In questi giorni sto facendo vari lavori molto surreali. Mi diverto a creare qualcosa che sta nella mia testa. Solamente dalla mia testa. Compreso la mia folle figura. Perché la fotografia è un palco meraviglioso per liberare i propri demoni. Molto presto vi aggiorno con tutte le varie novità. Grazie dell’ascolto 😉   Shot by Francesco Maria Colombo at his...
