As always, my children, Joan Crawford holds all the anaswers to life.
In her book My Way of Life, she suggested that you have a friend (or an enemy) follow you around and photograph you from all angles, while you are wearing your everyday clothes, hairstyle and makeup. We really don’t “see” ourselves when we look in the mirror, and our body type changes every ten years or so. So you really do get a shock of recognition when you look at your own candid photos–“Omigod, my high school hairdo no longer looks that great!” “Yikes, what was I thinking with those cut-offs?” etc.
