Readers' photos on the theme of self-portraits
Each week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week the theme is self-portraits and we begin with an image sent in by Rick Turner.
Olivia Huntingford: "I was inspired by this mirror on my holiday in Rhodes last year and thought a self-portrait would be appropriate. I had to lie on the floor in the hotel lobby, luckily no-one was around."
Stuart Braysford: "My first attempt at a self-portrait and I'm thinking of selling the rights to a scarecrow company!"
Ray Sewell: "I decided to wrap a map of my home town of Manchester around my self-portrait, using the displacement-map effect in Photoshop."
Paul Evans: "Riding in Karnataka, India, near Bangalore, a Royal Enfield, a near empty road and a lucky shot."
Simon Mee: "A 40-second exposure, moving with a strobe to achieve a composite of four of me."
Hsuan Lammers: "Me, snorkelling off Amed, in Bali, January 2013."
Lidia Regueiro: "I'd been trying out different face-painting designs. The clown face has quite obvious symbolism in terms of self-portrait, and I added the mirror to add to the 'performance' idea of the clown. I didn't realise it would end up looking so scary!"
Mark J Rothberg
Mark J Rothberg: "I'm a photography student, and this term we've been looking at portraiture. I took this as part of our recent self-portrait mini-project."
Will Creasy: "A portrait of my friend Sam and myself, taken while motorbiking the Cunny Path, in Vietnam."
Chrissie Barrow: "That's me in the bubble - I was taking photos of washing-up bubbles in the sunlight, and found I'd captured myself in one."
Justin Garner: "This is a self-portrait from inside my fridge, titled Chocolaaaaaate!"
Ian Hartwell: "I couldn't keep my dinner down".
Sławomir Maludzinski: "Looking at myself through Salvador Dali installation, at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France."
Laurence Green: "This is a self-portrait taken in mid-December, using my flatmate's clear juggling ball, which I noticed was able to produce some interesting results when used as an external lens."
And finally a photo by Gavin Jackman titled The Two Sides of Me. The next theme is "baking" and the deadline for your entries is 19 February.
