These images were taken while I was studying in Paris as an investigation into the ways people view and engage with art. I became interested in looking at the ways we look at art after noticing the apparent apathy present in many Parisian museums, and the way museum goers often chose to interact with art indirectly through their cell phones.
This series came about when I discovered the way a shadow casts a reminder on the face of the photographer--with a shadow we can see the unseen camera, the trace of the act of taking a selfie. I became obsessed with this way of leaving marks of self indulgence, and find it a way of unifying images collected in disjointed locations and moments through out my daily life.
More than a selfie, less than a portrait. A series of images captured to make meaning of moments during a summer spent alone.
