Self | Head On Photo Festival

Self

Photographer's Name: 
Katie Kolenberg

If a woman with a camera disturbed a herd of kangaroos on a mountaintop, but no-one saw it, does it mean anything?

This self portrait explores who we are when no-one else is around. So many of us are trapped in a world where we define ourselves by what others think of us. Is it ever really possible to reach a point where other's thoughts, values and judgements don't matter anymore? I had an experience on that mountaintop that had nothing to do with anyone me (and the kangaroos), and yet I cannot resist sharing the resulting image.
