This is a self portrait of the artist Gillian Wearing at age three. It is in Digital C-print. I chose it because I thought it was odd that the artist photographs herself wearing a prosthetic mask of her own face at the age of three. You can tell the artist is wearing a mask because of her eyes. Her true eyes are the only things showing through the mask. She sometimes dresses up as members of her family or herself at different ages. I think this is actually kind of creepy.
