The last month of my 20s. Day one.

Last month of my 20s day 1

I have started a little photo project documenting the final month of my 20s by making a self portrait every day.

This is the first photograph in that series from 12th December 2007. I wanted to make a photo in the style of Rembrandt after seeing one of his self portraits at the national gallery in Scotland. While I don’t think that that photograph is very Rembrandtesque I still like it.

    I think this looks really Rembrantesque, John. It will be interesting to see the whole month’s self portraits.

    Thanks for the comment Andy. The Rembrandt self-portrait that inspired me was this one here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Rembrandt_-_Self_Portrait111.jpg

    Yes that’s a great painting – portrait of a pissed off painter.
