Zoe Black: How to Make a Self Portrait

How to Make a Self Portrait

Zoe Black

My documentary explores how media's representation of women affects the formation of identity. Historians, actors, and artists share how their fields of expertise treat the representation of women and how they formed their own visual identities.

The oil on canvas self portrait pays homage to a painting of a girl with dark brown hair- the first time I remember seeing myself reflected in media.
