Livelihood - photograph by Sarah R. Bloom

I have been taking self-portraits as my primary form of artistic expression since 2006, when in August of that year I began the challenge of taking a self-portrait every day for one full year. I succeeded and had so many ideas left to explore, I kept going for a second year until August 2008. Between 2008-2012 I did a few weekly projects, a daily anything photo project, and continued my work in abandoned buildings.

In January 2012 I embarked on another year-long daily SP challenge, with a personal goal to get out of my comfort zone (for me it was getting over the fear taking self-portraits outside where people were around). After successfully completing a full year, I went into 2013 with the challenge of staying to a theme. I did a new theme for 2014 and my third themed set in 2015.  In 2016 I am on my 4th theme, my 7th 365 project, and the focus is on feminism. (the Flickr sets for all of these are hyper-linked in the text).

This gallery contains a sampling since 2012.

 

 

I have been taking self-portraits as my primary form of artistic expression since 2006. The exploration of identity as a woman entering middle age has emerged as a persistent theme in my work. Akin to the stages of grief, I face the idea of aging at first with dread, then resistance, and ultimately acceptance. In my experience, these stages are non-linear.

I have been creating an ongoing series of self-portraits in abandoned buildings since 2007, exploring these concepts in depth.
