Charming conceptual photographic artist's book, featuring public self-portraits of the artist taken over the course of a year.
Very good plus.
MYSELF: Timed Exposures
"For the past year self portraits have been my constant passion."
Mike Mandel is pictured at various locations including Disneyland, the beach, and Dodgers stadium: "I had to learn to react and compose my photograph with great speed. The self-timer buzzes for ten full seconds, allowing the world to change its complexion right in front of my static lens [...] The people react to my presence, to the buzzing machine a few feet away, to the words I have to say – suddenly, click!"
