Self Portrait Photography
The Ultimate in Personal Expression
SelfPortraiture has long been one of the most important genres in fine art, and as photographers like Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin demonstrate, offers unique possibilities for the creative photographer, too. The digital age and in particular, the photosharing site flickr has opened up the field, throwing up a generation of talents who, in presenting images of themselves to the world, offer new ways of seeing oneself. Foremost among these is Natalie Miss Aniela Dybisz. In Self-Portrait Photography, the only book of its kind, she offers a wealth of practical expertise and conceptual finesse. Her startlingly original work is deconstructed: she offers stepbystep worked examples of how unique effects were achieved, and other leading photographers in the genre profile themselves and their work too, all adding up to introducing a wealth of inspirational and technical ideas for todays digital photographer. Photographers at all levels will be inspired to take another look at the model closest to hand themselves.
Since shooting to internet fame under the name Miss Aniela, Natalie Dybisz's work has been internationally exhibited in galleries and fairs worldwide, and millions have seen her work online. She has been described as a "star" by both American Photo and, as well as "technically flawless" by Digital Photo Pro magazine. Millions have seen her work online, and she has appeared in leading newspapers and on BBC television. Also published by Ilex, her first book, Self-Portrait Photography, is available now.
