January Challenge: Duality

January Self Portrait Challenge: “Duality”

This month we’d like you to experiment with representing the dual nature of your personality visually by “cloning” yourself in an image in a style similar to that in this article: https://goo.gl/l79ps0 . The style doesn’t have to be exactly the same (you don’t have to sit next to yourself at a table) but stick with just two parts of your personality being put at odds somehow, and try to keep it simple. You can represent any two differing parts of your personality – juxtapose public/private, inside/outside, at your best/worst, etc… interpret as works best for you.

December Self Portrait Challenge: “Paper or Plastic?”

What this means is up to you, so get creative! You can interpret as you wish – use the prompt as a suggestion for image props or go totally abstract with it. We are looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!
