  • The Proud Archivist 2-10 Hertford Rd London, N1 5SH United Kingdom (map)

A stunning and truly creative collaboration between Soapbox & Sons, Creative Advice Network, 10 artists – and award winning photographer Jonathan Knowles.

The introduction of the word ‘selfie’ into the Oxford English Dictionary marked a huge change for the world of portrait photography, brought about by the flood of self-portraiture across social media channels.

But is this how we really see ourselves? Does this truly reveal a part of ourselves to the viewer?

Looking to explore the current notions of the self portrait, #Bagsie sought out the talents and personal interpretations of 10 artists, asking each to draw/paint/create a self portrait on a paper bag that reflected their personality within.
