Polaroid Self Portrait by northengirl Polaroid Self Portrait by northengirl
Apart of my Photography GCSE - Portraiture.

Exploring the idea that the places I grew up in and live in make me who I am today.
My enviroment shapes my personality, my likes, my accent - everything.

Each image is taken in a part of the area in which I live in - Bradford.
I was born here and I grew up here. I'm even proud to be from here!

Places taken in:

City Centre
My School
The Moors
My Room
A Coffee/book shop
My Bathroom
On The Train

I think that's all.


Taken with a Image Polaroid camera. I used this camera becuase I love the
imperfections - it also suited the idea I was trying to achieve. Polaroids seems more
personal and real than most photographic forms.

Also, the imperfections kinda reflect that everyone of us has imperfections,
they are apart of our personality.

I forgot to ask, who took these gorgeous pictures ? Personally I was the only one who could handle my Polaroid camera, if my fiance took my photo, it would be only my left ear or the top of my head would turn out.

I love Polaroids. Sure, the filmpacks are dead expensive, but it made us caution more with the compositions.

Oh what the heck, spending the films are so fun !
