Iridescence is a piece of social commentary photography that actualises social networking platforms creating fantasy existence where edits are how we look and likes and followers have real-world worth. Iridescence removes the filters and exposes the effect social media is having on our lives. Tackling issues such as body image, loneliness and screen addiction, the composites create a character living within this ‘utopia’. The series follows his navigation online, visualising how online pressures effect his battles with self worth, confidence and sexuality. The series uses self portraiture to portray my view on social media, juxtaposing soft imagery with harsh, unfiltered reality to portray the issues that are a direct result of these platforms, whilst hoping to inspire positive change.
