I came across this article about Samuel Fosso today and thought this is a great idea! He photographs himself in different outfits and disguises.. This is definitely something that I would like to try one day since my DSLR is collecting dust currently since my move.
Samuel Fosso is one of the most renowned and prodigious young African photographers.

A witty and ironic exploration of self-identity, Fosso’s work has been shown in major global venues such as the Photographers’ Gallery in London and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
