A Photographic Manifesto

  • Photographer
    Ming Lu

The self portrait is a photographic manifesto. By putting the Rolleiflex horizontally in front of me, my eyes are replaced with the “camera eyes”, one in white and the other in black. The image suggests the camera as an extension of my body. With my finger putting on the shutter speed and pointing up, it provokes a subtle sense of humour.
