Natural Camouflage Self-Portrait, c.1990s
In my self-portraits of the 1990s, I was interested in liminal spaces, the in-between, whether geographical, natural, or cultural. This self-portrait is an image of my body's shadow cast at low tide on the sea's edge on the French Atlantic coast. The low tide, the space between land and water, is a fitting liminal geography for an exiled identity. The shadow is equally fleeting, in flux.

This photograph references camouflage: notions of passing, blending in, mimicry.
