I figured if I had an album for my other half, I should also have one for myself because the romantic in me would like to see us getting old together side by side and to have a record of that. I’m also fascinated by self portraits. My dissertation was a study of female photographers who photograph themselves and the reasons why they do. I’d love to explore the theories further through my own work and so have set up this album as an incentive to pursue those projects (basically a kick up the arse) so hopefully you won’t have to wait too long for some more of those. Aside from that, I was gifted the opportunity to do some modelling after I won Curvy Kate’s ‘Star in a Bra’ competition this year (2011) and I wanted to be able to share some of my favourite shots and my new found confidence. These are definitely ones to keep for when I’m old and wrinkly and life has taken it’s toll!
