Alter Ego ( http://kiernangallery.com/alter-ego/ )
Self-portraiture is often used to explore and manipulate identity.
There is a performative aspect to this genre. By turning the camera on
oneself the photographer is brought out from behind their lens, and able
to choose how they would like to the world to see them.
The photographer invites judgment and critique on not only their
artistic message, but also their appearance and demeanor. For this
exhibition, The Kiernan Gallery seeks self-portraits that provide
insight into the “second self” that appears when artist becomes

His photographs, often self-portraits depict both everyday and unusual
events, all framed by his unique, and occasionally dark, sense of humor.
