Facing the camera

I sat alone in an empty room, with a mirror in from of me, and a camera pointed at my face. That was nothing new to me, I took pictures of myself before, however, photography does not require talking. It was like having a conversation with someone whom I had to look straight into the eyes. It felt unnatural to me, intimidating, and emotionally challenging. You cannot hide anything or lie in that situation. Lying to the camera would mean lying to yourself.
