More and more artists are taking themselves as the subjects for their work. This essay look at documentarians who have placed themselves in central roles in their artistic practice.
The artists I have decided to choose from are Marlon Riggs, Trin T. Mihn-ha, Ross McElwee, Cindy Sherman and Francesca Woodman. My preferences are Ross McElwee and Cindy Sherman in which we can look at self portrait both in cinema and in photography.
I’ve a list of readings related to these artist which I’ll wright here. These are necessary readings that I need to cite them in my paper.
