Men Staring at Themselves
This project is about the construction and representation of one's social identity and how photography has become an essential tool for the online presentation and self-representation of one's identity. About how the act of taking a selfie and posting it online is a game of showing and hiding. Far from being a self-empowering act, is more like a public demonstration that one is worthy of being accepted as member of his or her tribe. The figures resembling men of my images are very much aware of what they want to show and what is regarded socially as masculine. They are also very aware of what they want to hide.
