Me vs Others is a photographic experiment that explores the curation of one's “self” image. It is a series of self-portraits shot through the bodies of others - friends, loved ones, artists met on travels. These self-portraits are at times autobiographical, and at times entirely fictional.
With this project, I play with photography as a space where the line between what is staged and what is not gets blurred - a space where we assume what we see to be real. Working on this project for several years, a sense of dissonance has increasingly appeared between this created image of the “self” and reality - I grow and change, but the character remains the same. Over time, the images have become less about identifying others as myself, and more about the loss of self that comes with curating a virtual/visual identity.
