Douglas Prince – Self Portrait as a Dreaming Man


A couple years ago I stumbled on this picture and it struck me immediately. It´s probably my all time favourite pic, for totally irrational reasons. I just love it, viscerally. I´m 300% happy because this week I finally identified its author, Douglas Prince (link at the bottom of this page). Now all I need to find out is where, if anywhere, there´s a copy to be sold.
The photo title evokes “Self Portrait as a Drowned Man”, a photo (actually a series) which is full of history itself, shot by Hippolyte Bayard in 1840.
