Self Summary

I have made a new gallery page to finally get online Self Summary, which was one of my final year projects at university, and the biggest project I've ever done, featuring 30 different people.


Each person in it was asked to pick a word to summarise themselves, with the conceit being that they exchanged their everyday clothing and accoutrements for a physical version of that word that they would then pose with for their portrait. Of course one word can never entirely summarise a person, but the in trying to do so the types of words, and what they mean to people, were most revealing.


I've resisted putting this series online before as it was originally presented as a book, and I had half an idea to see if I could get it published. But having not gotten round to doing that yet, several years later, I feel I would rather just get on and share with the world some of my best work!
