Her new book, Self-Portrait Photography (Pixiq) is a treasure trove of inspiration. In addition to her own stunning shots, the author includes the work of other talented photographers specializing in self-portraits: Annette Pehrsson, Rossina Bossio, Noah Kalina, Joanne Ratkowski, Yulia Gorodinski, Jon Jacobsen, Federico Erra, and Lucia Holm.
