INTO THE LIGHT-SELFPORTRAITS FOR SOCIAL NETWORKS, 2009/10

The digital camera has become a permanent companion, used by people to document their everyday life. As the popularity of social networking has grown, self-portraiture has become a common phenomenon, a method of carrying one's own story into the outside world. Self-portraits have become a kind of language, a shared mode of communication facilitated by the digital camera and computer. These images re-stage self-portraits posted on social networks. They reveal the full scenario that was not visible in the original self-portrait and show the exact moment when the flash of the self portrait goes off, the making of a digital identity that will eventually allow the individual to be included within a broad community while at the same time shut away at home.
