The Shooting Gallery Portraits

October 28, 2010

Every year since 1936 Ria van Dijk  has taken her self portrait in a unique way — she goes to a fair shooting gallery booth –  one where every time you hit the target it triggers a camera shutter and you win a portrait of yourself in firing pose.   I love self portraiture, especially when thoughtful done.  See them all here.  Found via The Year in Pictures.  I love the emerald green of the shirt next to Ria and the bright lipstick on the young lady behind her.  So much vitality in a snapshot.
