ART: Self-Isolation Self-Portraits

  • Ben Arogundade

The coronavirus has resulted in widespread self-analysis amongst us — what am I doing with my life? What are my values now? While in solitary lockdown in my flat in west London, I decided to explore the theme of the self via a series of self-portraits. Each one began as a selfie, after which it was manipulated digitally. Each altered image is a metaphor for the altered person I hope to be when the pandemic passes.
