Edward Steichen shot himself

© Edward Steichen, 1903

Thanks to the self-portrait gallery blog for this unique find. This self-portrait is of the man whose image "Pond Moon-Light" broke the world record price for a photograph when it was sold for more than $2.9m in 2006.

I really enjoy the candid appearance of it. Hmmmm... I don't believe I've ever tried a candid self-portrait before and I'm not sure how I'd trick myself into acting candid while holding the remote to trigger the shot?
