Hi ___, how are you? This is a little random.
Addressing social constructs of how we see others, while simultaneously analysing how we see ourselves in relation to others within the era of social media. We assume to know people from voyeuristically viewing their lives through photographs online and form a fake perception of the individual. Thus, my decision to photograph young homosexual men sourced online, attempting to see and capture the real person behind the profile not just the online persona. Working within their domestic, as it is a space we create for ourselves to feel safe, free from the judgement of others. Where is, the line drawn between authentic self and performance? Or are we always to varying degrees performing in the era of social media?
