Albrecht Dürer - Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

For a fraction of a second, Albrecht Dürer's self portrait foretold of an individual who was a thinker, mathematician, observer and an engraver who lived a solitude life of immense loneliness. He had an obligation to his people (kind), and believed in the Divine. He envisioned the world in distance, as lines, squares and compasses, yet he was a man quite staunch in his ways and fussy over his appearance. Cold, his heart was wrapped with chains. I was sadden by this feeling.
