This assignment requires that you create a self portrait (2 photos): one that shows who you are and one that shows who you are not. If you do not wish to use a photo of yourself you can choose to photograph objects that represent you.
This is not a studio class and as such this is not a studio project. It concerns the reception and interpretation of images in this case raising questions on the gap between critical and expressive photography.
You can create your portraits as still photographs or short videos. Enjoy!
