Click to preview I PHOTOGRAPH therefore I AM photo book


This artist's book is an archive of vernacular images, namely mirror self portraits. Adopting the role of the archivist, I am assembling a vast collection of images wherein the "photographer" is visually obscured by her instrument of choice. As camera ownership becomes a staple of modern existence, those wielding one continually validate their own existence with the obligatory mirror self portrait.
