60 Sensational Self Portraits

From Suffocating Photography to Soul-Searching Portraiture

— March 3, 2011 — Art & Design
This list of self portraits include some spectacular collections of incredible photography and intense imagery. When you’re your own model, everything is up to you -- the lighting, the posing, the environment and the composition. These self portraits showcase the experimentation and exploration that each creative mind pursues.

What’s incredible about this collection as a whole is that it demonstrates just how different and extraordinary each individual is. From suffocating photography to soul-searching portraiture, these photographers/ models transform themselves multiple times to produce highly intriguing self portraits.

If you want to become a creative artist, taking self portraits will enhance your skills as you constantly challenge yourself to create something new. It’s time to whip out your camera, set the timer and become the main subject.
