and that kinda wind-blown look of your hair is a nice touch, too. i'm always wondering how you keep such a straight face, russell.
russell higgs: i don't keep a straight face in the shots i take for my photo-webcomics. but then whatever i'm doing in a webcomic shot is juxtaposed and contextualised by speech balloons and other panels.

each daily self portrait is on its own and i decided i didn't want to narrow down their contextual possibilities. a fairly neutral expression keeps the interpretations wider and more open.

if i smile in them, for instance, it narrows it down to me giving a wink to the audience and is perhaps just read as me messing around for a laugh.

and equally any kind of angsty expression would perhaps narrow the interpretations to just being dark or some kind of primal scream therapy or me as serial killer etc.
