I began capturing self-portraits as Wonuola Lawal when I realised I lacked a strong self-concept. Through taking pictures of myself, I was able to see myself clearly and understand who I was better, especially as words would flow through me to accompany each picture. Each self-portrait is a love letter to myself.
Note To Self is a series captured on 35mm film about a woman writing notes to herself on the different elements of being a woman.
My first series on film in which I captured the images manually, developed and processed the film myself. The final images were worth the two-month struggle & I also incorporated photoshop.
