| Think about Hartley's approach to portraits which
include codes and symbols. If you were to make a self-portrait or
portrait of a friend in this way, what symbols would you include?
Think about your own "signs"--choices you have made for clothing,
hair, and jewelry, and other aspects of your life, work and interests.
These choices help shape and create our identities. Which would you
combine to create an abstract portrait?
