Self Portraits

2014.

This project consists of anachronistic images. In the “Selfies” era, it’s an exploration of what we formally call self-representation, it ranges from what can be considered a mistake, which shows a halo of light interfering with the image, to the representation of choking/suffocation as a result of performing an identity all the time. The series shows the process of change, the distortion resulting from what a person is at a certain time to what they become over time; it’s a metamorphosis, a step from the figurative easy assimilation to the complex and real self-representation to the world. It’s the same individual at different times, the same voice in different tones; the camera is capturing the change. Ultimately, it’s what I was, what I have been and what I am now.
