Yamrus originally intended the self portraits in his series, “I Feel Lucky,” to address body image – – the classic middle age spread: the growing gut, the lines in the face, the dropping jowls, etc. However, as the series progressed, it quickly slipped into a deeper psychological mode. Each photograph is based on a pivotal moment in Yamrus’ life ranging from adolescence to middle age, and how that moment, or memory of that moment, influenced the person he is today. Also, generally speaking, each photograph is inspired by and constructed from another image – – sometimes a famous one, while others may be a family snapshot or a JPG stumbled across on a random website.
