The "Selfies" are a series of self-portraits where my image is reflected in hand-held objects. The odd shape of the object brings to mind the Dutch tradition of anamorphosis- A distorted or monstrous projection or representation of an image on a plane or curved surface, which, when viewed from a certain point, or as reflected from a curved mirror or through a polyhedron, appears regular and in proportion; a deformation of an image,  while reminding us of the current trend in our culture of recording our moments of minutia to be preserved for posterity, in the hope that they will have historical importance. Recently The Selfies have morphed into a series of self-portraits where I examine myself as classical figures of tragi-comic such as Silenus, Pagliacci, and Gilles etc.
