“A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph, it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All of them are accurate. None of them is the truth.” – Richard Avedon. With this work, the artist questions the concepts of truth and accuracy in portraiture and points out its social role in space and time. THE REAL SELF is an ongoing project that explores the various ‘selves’ within us, depicting them through portraits.
