All of Me
ongoing project, begun in 2008
set of unique hardcover bound books, each 7" x 7" square, maximum 400 pages each volume
This book project collects every single image I can find of myself taken within a given year, without editing for content or aesthetics, and uncropped. Each image fills an entire page. Bound in hardcover format, the collected volumes attempt to become a portrait of a "self," --a visual encyclopedic rendering of every photograph in which I appear.
The photographs range from hand-held self-portraits to images taken by friends, lovers, or even strangers. Sometimes posing for the camera and sometimes unaware of the shooter, the self/subject is held up for scrutiny.
The collected volumes date back to 2002.
