I made a book! Or two…

When I started making self portraits way back in 2008, I never would have thought I would be doing this for such a long time. But here we are, at the end of 2019 and I have decided to gather some of my favorite self portraits from the past decade into two books.

One More Creature‘ is an 80-page hardcover book, featuring self portraits divided into three categories: “Everything looks worse in black and white”, “The inescapable nude” and “It’s all in the details”. It’s an overall overview of the work I produced in the past ten years, starring some of my absolute favorite photos.

In Monochrome‘ is a softcover book containing 42 pages and features exclusively black and white self portraits. The cool thing about this book is that it also features some of my analog portraits as well as a couple previously unpublished photos.

I have put all my effort into creating these two beautiful books. They are basically… My life. If you like my photography and want to support this starving artist, consider buying one of these books. It would mean the world to me!

Guess who’s back, back again

I’m very happy to announce my new website! The design is completely revamped and lots of new images have been added. Go check it out at www.elsvanopstal.com and please let me know what you think. :)

Another little secret of mine is that I’m trying to get more into shooting video as well. To start this off, I’m going to be making a video to put on the about page on my website. It would be nice if you were to send me some questions about me or my photography, that I could give an answer to in this video. Don’t be shy! :)
