My work focuses on using humor to poke fun at social media and the process of taking selfies. Our obsession with curating an alter ego on virtual media. With phones being like an extension of ourselves I want to show how this generation falsely depict an image to appear more interesting online. It’s with the use of photography that this imagery comes full circle from the idea that it is showcasing. Self-portraiture used to be a thing of beauty that would be constructed over many sittings in an artists studio, so from past to present we see it takes a snapshot in order to achieve what could take weeks of work. The medium of photography should not be misused.
