I am very excited to have been selected as an artist for #BAGSIE, a collaboration with Soapbox&Sons, Creative Advice Network and photographer Jonathan Knowles.
The exhibition of the photographs and the self portrait bags opens at The Proud Archivist, N1 from 11th November – 16th November before a move to Sweden in March 2015.
#BAGSIE – a stunning and truly creative collaboration between Creative Advice Network, Soapbox & Sons, 10 artists and award winning photographer Jonathan Knowles.
The introduction of the word ‘selfie’ into the Oxford English Dictionary marked a huge change for the world of portrait photography, brought about by the flood of self-portraiture across social media channels.
But is this how we really see ourselves? Does this truly reveal a part of ourselves to the viewer?
Looking to explore the current notions of the self portrait, #Bagsie is a stunning and truly creative collaboration between Creative Advice Network, Soapbox & Sons and award winning photographer Jonathan Knowles. The project sought out the talents and personal interpretations of 10 artists, asking each to draw/paint/create a self portrait on a paper bag that reflected their personality within.
NB the attached photo was taken by me of my #BAGSIE and is not from the #BAGSIE photoshoot.
