#thisismebeing40 is a self-portrait project being hosted on my Instagram account where I take a photo of myself every week and share it on Monday. This is a 52 week project - follow along here!
1/52 • Today I begin my newest photo project called #thisismebeing40. On January 21st I'll be 40 (wow wow wow) and I'm committed to posting one self portrait each week on Monday morning. The people closest to me know that I really hate selfies, but there's something about documenting this year that feels important and I've come to believe that self-portraits can actually be radical acts of self-love. So here I am posting a photo of my face at a time when I'm probably a little too overweight and I drink too much wine and eat too much cheese and all I see is my mother's nose and how deep my crows feet have become since the summer when I look at this photo but I want to document my year and my feelings and the changes that I will experience at this very big milestone birthday year. Do you have any projects planned this year? It's the perfect time to start! #vulnerabilitystudies#sarahderagonstudio #52weekproject#explorecreativity #photoproject
