Autobiography in Hair

(rows in reverse chronological order)

An ongoing project documenting my hair colors and styles over the years. Initially they were just doodles for fun, but I realized that many significant events/periods coincided with these changes and became interested in using it as a "scaffold" for personal history. I started incorporating other elements: the scrape from a bad bike accident; extensions worn as a character in a play; periods of depression and elation.

Aside from the first eighteen or so, they were done in the same period they represent.
