Untitled Self Portrait, 2012

This picture was taken in Alexandria, Egypt in a Greek-style cafe where I was having tea.  There is a duality in form between the spirals of the hair on the busts and the spirals in the embroidery of the dress.  The netting with the tiny lights covers the statues and the figure, making the subject a part of the visual scenery.  The tinting of the sepia tone gives the image a nostalgia.
