Faceless Self-Portrait

Find Those Golden Details That Tell a Story

There are so many ways to remove a face from an image beyond the popular headless body or hand-in-face methods. Whether they’re fun and quirky or deep and meaningful, whether they’re staged or spontaneous, shadows or head turns, I want you to show me a portrait. Show me a body and their story. Show me their kitchen or show me their park. Just don’t show me their face.

Thank you to Marie McGrory for this assignment idea!

1. Setup and take a self-portrait that does not include your face. This means that some pose, action, object, or setting will tell us a story of you. Try to compose the image so it says something meaningful.

2. Compose a concise one or two sentence caption.
