Anti-Portraits: Testing the Limits of Portraiture

Photo by Mitsuko Nagon
Portraits are my favorite type of photography. After watching a documentary on Netflix about revolutionary photographer Francesca Woodman, I've been regularly searching the internet for interesting types of self-portraits. This is how I've come to learn about anti-portraits. These are a type of portrait that does not show the face of the person being photographed. They challenge the idea of traditional photography because instead of being a documentation of existence, anti-portraits are a reminder of a temporary existence.
