Me and my Lubitel

I don’t know if there’s a term for it, but I have long noticed the tendency to photograph oneself with one’s camera. Until I received my ancient Lomo in the post, I didn’t really get it.

I have since termed this tendency “Camera Porn” 😉

This is the third ever shot taken with my Lubitel 2. I’m still trying to work it out, which is plain to see I suspect.

  1. I also love self portraits.I wish I had done more of them back in high school when I was first experimenting with photography.I think I would have been enthralled with seeing lots of pictures of myself.Now,not so much for some reason.Have you checked out the work of Francesca Woodman? Most of her photos are self portraits,in fact I have only found a few photos that weren’t of her.Some say that’s the height of narcissism,I just think it’s interesting.
