22 Outstanding Self-Portraits

by David Peterson 1 comment

No doubt about it, self-portraits are an art form. It's not just because of the logistics of setting up the shot and jumping into the frame, but also because, well, self-portraits are hard. A good self-portrait must be expressive without being pretentious, and that's a fine line to walk. Not sure how to proceed? Check out this list of excellent self-portraits to see what has worked for other photographers.
