One of my daughter's friends does the most amazing self-portraits. She doesn't think she is pretty, and yet she is astonishingly so, with unusual and captivating features. I always get the impression from her photos that she is trying to understand her face. She has such a sense of color and fading and cropping. I'll only run one picture here, in case she would rather not be recognizable on my blog. But, for the record, I think she is a wonderful artist and a dear soul.
