DETAILS:

This is a portrait of my friend Esmee posing as myself with spring flowers in my studio. “Me vs Others” is a photographic experiment that seeks to explore the nature of curated selfhood and self-representation in the 21st century. It is a series of self-portraits through the bodies of others. I started posting these images online as a visual trick, to make viewers believe they were looking at pictures of me when really, they were not. Soon, I was on a quest to explore every possible self: everyone I have been, or could have been – a world of endless possibilities. This project plays with photography as a space where what is staged and what is not gets blurred; a space where we assume what we see to be real. This project was featured as the cover of the 2018 Vice Photo Issue. It has also been featured in media outlets such as Bomb Magazine, Dazed, and Broadly. It was exhibited as a solo exhibition at The Letter Bet in Montreal in 2019, and will be published as a monograph with Editions Lemaitre in Paris in 2019.
