I created a self portrait by layering photos, one from each year that I have lived (1997-). Most images had to be located around my house on walls and in boxes, then scanned into digital files.
I did this work in Photoshop, starting with a photo from 1997, layering chronologically until 2018. For each photo I aligned only the face and reduced each image to 5% opacity so that traces of each image can be seen.
I put my final image in a frame because I felt that that was the most appropriate way to display a portrait, and most of the images I used were kept in frames around my house.
