self portrait

these self¬†portraits by ari gabel are so very good. you can imagine an entire story happening within each frame, and i love the fact that you don’t see the faces of anyone else in the images. medium format always wins.

    It really is a great idea! It seems like he’s the only one aware of the picture being taken. (Like seeing a ghost). Besos!

    Oh yes, they’re very striking indeed, even a bit off putting. But very interesting.

    It’s amazing how he looks completely abstracted from his surrounding, the way he’s looking at the camera it’a bit creepy but I love it!

    [...] Self portraits are almost always awkward or boring or vain, but not his. He totally nailed it. Go check out the rest of them, they look even better when they’re big. ¬†[via miss moss.] [...]
