Self Portrait May II

I found an old transparency, a photograph taken on a shoot in Paris a long time ago. It is one of a series but is a reject that had never been made into a print. Sometimes old photographs throw up strange emotions. My memory of this day is strange, not really very pleasant.

So I scanned it and altered it, adding digital paint and plenty of leaves to the hair. It did the trick. Now I’m really delighted when I look at it. Paint can change the past.
