Seities & Selves
Self as subject, one’s uniqueness in scope, portraiture by design.
“Seity” is an uncommon word which, as defined by Webster, is “A quality peculiar to oneself; selfhood; individuality”. It could be seen as the essential quality of the true self-portrait: an expression of what makes the subject unique and defines her/his character in some way. This does not imply an exact replication of the photographer’s appearance. Rather, it goes below the surface to reveal something of the essence of the photographer’s psyche.
In this age of the ubiquitous throwaway selfie it’s an even greater and more worthwhile challenge to create a self portrait that expresses one’s uniqueness and individuality.
