The beginning of my photo projects for 2014: my January self-portrait. I decided to highlight my favourite feature: my eyes. In doing so, I also showcase a couple other features I am not quite as happy with – my perpetually dry and also oily skin with its blemishes and scars and massive pores from acne I have struggled with, as well as my thin and oddly shaped eyebrows. I have accepted these features as part of me and who I am, finally.
I am learning to like myself despite all of the things I’m not really happy with. I think this photo project will also be an act of self-love.
