Life is conformed by opposites: joy and sadness, lightness and darkness, day and night, white and black etc… One opposite is always interconnected with his respective opposite; for example if we know the lightness it´s because we know the darkness and so on.
This series of self-portraits is about expressing and showing the different attitudes of life through opposites or contrasts combined with self-portraits.
Negative aspect is always represented in the left side by the black background and the woman dressed in black versus the positive aspect represented in the right side and the woman dressed in white. The positions of the woman are also opposed.
Each image shows an emotion, for example in the image "Self-portrait III", communicates the option that we have sometimes to enter to the darkness, the past, the cold represented by the woman dressed in black looking to the left and backwards versus the lightness, the future, the warmth in which the women dressed in white is walking forward.
