Jimmie Durham made his first self-portrait in 1987 (read a story about it here), which was followed by a series of performative images that were produced since the artist moved to Europe. These photographs, taken by Maria Thereza Alves, show Durham playing the part of the artist whose personality unfolds into multiple identities, such as those of other artists, fictive characters or an stone.
