Maybe  because Umrao Singh Sher-Gil was an amateur  photographer and maybe because he lived in between two centuries: the 19th and the 20thy, moving between two very different countries: Hungary and India, Sher-Gil posed himself the way he did in this self-portrait. Seems to me he ignored the conventional way to show an Indian’s portret, and did not repeat what was accepted in the photography scene of the west. More of these self-portraits and family photos you can find in his family archive.  As in this one,  you can see, how his self-determination is so uniqe also for these days.
