Uncertain portraitis a series of 16 photographs of the film maker Derek Jarman. Each photograph contains two images of Jarman which were made simultaneously. The innermost image is relatively correct and serves as a control for the outer image which has been distorted by the curvature of the camera back. As the series progress the distorted image moved inward and interferes with the control image so that a visual effect of a spiral is achieved.
