Self Portrait 1986

Ellen Carey is a photographer whose work is in some ways similar to Chuck Close’s style. Her camera produces images that use circles and shapes that display her portrait. She also has many self portraits, like Close, and comments ” that in exposing the physical nature of the medium itself, the resulting image becomes something altogether foreign, bearing almost no resemblance to what we traditionally consider to be a photograph.” This is also inline with the work of Close – he too wanted to expose the process in which the painting made and remove the focus from the person sitting for the portrait.
