Deadpan Self portrait

Deadpan = dead face = photographic style where the facial expressions are sought to be "neutral", often used in portrait series that show a certain type of people fx Rineke Dijkstras pictures of adolescents on the beach or Richard Avedons portraits of the people in the american west.

Just back from travelling 2 months, I am attending a workshop where we explore this aesthetic. First assignment - make a deadpan selfportrait.
