Head Shots

I'm used to being in the practice of looking at images, but right now it's consuming my life. So to take a break from the array of slide tests, essays and other art history non-sense I'm elaborating on a theme I explored for an assignment in IB Art. Our first year midterm was to design our own exhibition around a theme of your choice with between 10 to 20 works of art from different media and I chose to document the changing style of female portraiture through the ages...
