People are always banging on about ‘finding yourself’ when you go traveling. But when you’re living in hostels and greyhound stations, the reality is that mostly the only time you’re alone is on the toilet. So after traveling for five months, I rented a room in Calgary and spent most of two months in solitude, painstakingly working away on this series of self-portraits. I still haven’t found myself.
Alex Stoddard will stop you in your tracks. His recent 365 day project in which he took a self-portrait every day day for a year, is an example of pure, boundless creativity and breathtaking composition. And at only seventeen years of age, Stoddard is definitely one to watch.
