Entry Title: "
Cat on a Hot Tin Floor Inside of Her Darkroom"
Category: Non-Professional, Self-Portrait
Entry Description: In my opinion, my best work came from the times when I was taking hundreds of pictures of myself, trying to evoke an atmosphere I would create inside of my mind - always spontaneous, rarely well planned. It so happened, I never had a model around to incarnate those ideas, apart from my very self.
The themes I try to convey in my photographs are never about the phantasmagorical higher meanings of life or some other poetical philosophical aspects of the universe, but are very personal, to the point when they become mundane due to the widely relatable nature of those themes. Self perception and self evaluation - something that everybody goes through, most acutely when they are in their teenage years. When I was creating some of my pictures, I was not trying to reach out to a potential viewer to cry for help and attention, but to look inside of me and see if there was anything worth preserving or destroying.
