In my project “Self-i,” I explore the intersection of self-expression, through a unique and participatory approach. Empowering my subjects, I hand them a remote control, granting them complete autonomy in capturing their own image for a predetermined duration. This process allows individuals to curate their poses and presentations, fostering a profound connection between self-perception and photographic representation.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, some participants opted to contribute remotely by emailing selfies to me which were taken on their mobile phones. Embracing this digital exchange, I take on the role of photo editor / retoucher by manipulating the self-portraits using analogue and digital techniques. I infuse the images with my own interpretation of Instagram and mobile phone filters, probing the intersection of personal identity and the visual aesthetics of contemporary digital culture.
