I have been enjoying the self-portrait exhibit on line and it reminded me of a wonderful exhibit on autoportraits in photogrpahy at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). One of the most clever was by M F Agha - born in Hungary of Turkish parents, but who worked in the US as art director of Vogue. and he became president of New York's Art Director's Club. I hope the National Portrait Gallery has a copy of his autoportrait, just for the whimsy as well as for the historical significance of M F Agha.
