Self portraits

I was intrigued by the idea of taking self-portraits, I even wrote a technical article for a photo magazine about it.  My goal was to come up with an image to represent myself as a photographer.  Eventually I succeeded, combining my love for playing cards with my love for photography: I represented myself as the Queen of Spades.  Then my friend Paul Ruscha designed the graphics for the back and I had my first business card.
