Katharina Sieverding is a photographer known for her self-portraiture. Sieverding's works consist of self-portraiture and most have an abstract quality. She uses the techniques of silhouette, contrast, and extreme close-up to make the photograph more revealing of herself. She tinted all the prints in one 1969 series a deep scarlet, and for another painted her face gold. Her work often makes statements about society and the individual, such as showing the familiarity of the self and the distance of others. Often she puts multiple portraits together in one piece. Each portrait fills the frame in a way to show the presence of self...

Interesting and stark idea, Korkut - it took me a minute even with your note to understand what I was looking at. Your decision to show this in B&W enhances the existing grain of the work. Nice placement of the figure, within a darker region of the piece itself. Thanks!

Another great work of yours! I like the grain, it gives such a misterious mood...
Enjoy your WE!

Something eerie, scary, surreal for me here, it is like a dream, perhaps unsettling, but one that you wake up from and it makes you think, and approach the day with fresh thinking. Creative and brilliant execution I must say.
I hope this finds you well my friend,
