Half of a Millimeter, a Self-image Photo Series Exploring How Subjects View Themselves

Share Article

This is an active self-image photo portrait series that captures subjects favorite physical feature and their reason why they like that feature.

Keith Clark would like to invite all to view a special photographic portrait series exploring self-image and how people view themselves. Mr. Clark started by asking people what their favorite physical feature was and why. He then would photograph them and each subject provides the text reason for why they chose that feature.

To date, the result is a powerful collection of more than 90 individuals that have chosen everything from eyes and smiles to scars, feet and buttocks as their features.

Mr. Clark’s goal is for viewers of the project to take something from it and in the end look at themselves and others in a different light and not necessarily how advertising may direct them to.

One of the subjects, ‘Christine’ had the stretch marks on her buttocks photographed with her text reading “Everyday my stretch marks remind me of the wonderful changes my body had to make for the birth of my 1st born son. And everyday, those very same marks, remind me of the 2 1/2 beautiful years of life I was given to love and protect Logan before his death. I smile every time I see them.”

Mr. Clark is currently still taking subjects for the project but only in the Indianapolis metro area due to travel and time restrictions.

Keith Clark is an architect by training and his photography passion has always been architectural images as seen here http://www.keithclark.net – this self-image project is his first venture into portraits of human architecture and has resulted in a warm welcome and some local coverage in the Indianapolis area.
