Self-Portrait by Paul Outerbridge (1927)

The photograph titled “Self-Portrait” is by the artist Paul Outerbridge and was created in the year 1927. This image features a figure who is dressed in formal attire complete with a top hat. The person is wearing large, round and reflective sunglasses that obscure the eyes, and a dramatic white mask with dark lips seems to present an exaggerated or theatrical expression. The subject also has a striped tie that adds a pattern contrast against the solid dark suit. The figure’s posture is a bit slanted, and one hand is visible, delicately holding what appears to be a cigarette or small thin object. The lighting highlights the individual’s face and attire, with a soft shadow cast in the background.
