Obsession

Obsession
Photo Description:
To comment on the obsession of the self and self image in the modern world, I focused on the modern phenomenon of the selfie. Through the bright colours and tribal patterns of the faces I used, inspired by the work of David Gomez Maestre, I aimed to highlight the childishness shown through taking a selfie. By using celebrity selfies I commented also on the obsession of celebrity in media and society. The first image is of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the second is Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar selfie and the last is of Kris Jenner with two of her daughters and Chelsea Handl. 180 X 100cm
