Our #selfportrait of the week is this moody piece by @joonyoun_. Of it, she comments, 'I took this photo when I was visiting my parents for the holidays. I was spending NYE with them for the first time in two years so I was hoping that we would have a sweet, family gathering but I ended up having one of the biggest fights I’ve ever had with my dad so it wasn’t exactly the family gathering that I had hoped for. I locked myself in the bathroom for an hour or so, thinking and reflecting on all the empty promises I had made for myself at the end of 2016 that I never kept. It was another New Year’s and I kept on making the same old mistakes. So taking this photo was a symbolic gesture / a promise to try and stop repeating old mistakes.' #selfportraitmag #contemporaryart #visualart #portrait
