Roberto Foddai takes self-portraits that range from erotically charged images to theatrical, costumed portraits.

Foddai utilizes a variety of Photoshop techniques to manipulate and transform his original image, such as one that merges two pictures of himself in one. Another more suggestive shot features Foddai orally pleasuring his Photoshop double.

Of his work, Foddai explains, "I always liked the idea of documenting my own life for myself. Keeping a visual diary of my life also gave me other ideas or other subjects I could work on. This is clearly a work in progress and without any doubt one of my favourite parts of my work. I often struggle with the way I look but it helps me to look at my life in a more objective way." That being said, Foddai also considers his work to be a political statement, instead of something entirely personal. Stats for Dramatic Self-Portraits Trending: Older & Average
