A year ago, a photojournalist named Matthew Houghton, who was working as a reporter for the British magazine Vanity Fair, took a photograph of himself at a coffee shop in a city near his home.
“I was just taking a picture of myself,” he told Vanity Fair.
“My wife had just asked me to take the photo, and I said, ‘Of course!'”
Houghtons mother, who is also his girlfriend, then told him to stop taking pictures.
“You can’t say that you are just doing it because you want to be famous,” HoughTON said.
“If you were a photographer, I’d have to be on the phone with you to say, ‘This is not going to be me.'”
The photographer decided to stop doing portraits.
He was eventually diagnosed with anorexia and then committed suicide in his bedroom in the summer of 2016.
Houghts mother has since spoken about the suicide, which she blames on his self-absorption.
“He was self-obsessed and thought that if he wasn’t famous he would never be able to be happy,” she said.
The next year, Houghtons mother found him, with her own camera, on the street.
She offered to take pictures of him, and he accepted.
“What I realised was that people who were just looking for something to get them into the moment, and were not trying to be a hero, were more likely to be self-focused and more likely not to care about what others think of them,” Haughton said.
Haughtons mother and photographer shared a series of photographs with Vanity Fair in 2017.
The magazine published Hough, and then wrote an article about him, in which he described his depression and anxiety as a result of being rejected by women.
He said that his depression made him “feel ashamed” about his body.
“For a long time, I felt like I had to hide,” he said.
But, in 2017, the photographer found a solution.
“In my early 20s, I started to notice that my friends were having less sex, and they were looking at me differently,” he explained.
“The more I talked to them, the more I realised that my body didn’t matter anymore.
I realised I had never really had a body before.”
Hough and Hough’s girlfriend began to take selfies of themselves together.
Haugh’s friends began to notice this. “
People look at me like I’m a bit of a piece of meat, and that’s not the case.”
Haugh’s friends began to notice this.
“When I started taking more selfies, people started talking to me differently.
And people started to start to ask questions about me.”
In 2017, Haugh started taking his own pictures of himself, and it was clear that his selfless, and sometimes self-conscious, behaviour was helping to change his friends’ perceptions of him.
The photographer told the Daily Mail that he is now “an amazing human being”.
“I am able to make people smile and feel like I belong here,” he wrote.
“That’s how I feel when I’m around other people.
I’m able to have these moments with them that I could never have had otherwise.”
In 2018, the pair shared a photo of themselves, each holding a smartphone in hand, at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
“We started taking the pictures together because I wanted to show the world what my body looks like, and what I think it feels like,” Haugt said.
After sharing a photo with the public, Haugton said his mother had a change of heart.
“As a result, I’ve been able to let go of that and be myself.” “
And that’s something that I think I’ve always been guilty of, but it’s now coming out,” he added.
“As a result, I’ve been able to let go of that and be myself.”
His mum has been more accepting of his decision to share his selfies, and has even encouraged Hough to consider taking more photos of herself in public.
“Because I am so self-aware and aware of my own body, and because I know that it’s okay for others to see me, I have taken more photos,” he continued.
It’s not like I have to put up with anything from them.'””
But at the same time, when I am with people I think, ‘Oh, I’m so happy for them.
It’s not like I have to put up with anything from them.'”
