Puke Portraits is a series of 56 self-portraits taken on my phone after being sick during my pregnancy.
After throwing up for the first time I looked so horrible that I took a photo of myself.
I was not always in the same location on each occasion, but I decided to show 10 of the ones in the bathroom of my flat here.

Hashtag diary entries accompany each picture, the text for 32nd is below.
