Portraying oneself
One of the visual expressions of human curiosity to the world is the glimpse of the iconic world of reality embedded in photographic samples. Photography registers reality, enhances memories storage and locks facts even when we want to reject them. Moreover, it identifies us. Think of Identification card photo, diploma photo, driving license photo, fake photo, corpse evidence photo for forensic investigation, etc. Identification of the appearance, of the external emanation of a personality. But how about the variants? The personality's delving into the other self? Thinking processes allow us to contemplate our inner self. To examine ourselves. To create self-esteem. Yet photography needs the artistic technique of the Fine Art Photographer, his creative whim to explicate duplicity and multiply the image in the daily routine continuum.

Yet locking space and your place in it is not just a matter of artistic technique. This is also a matter of psychological introspection and absorption of the fact that personality identification and self-identification come up just to a discreet process.
