The selfie is a photographic genre within everyone’s reach where the use is to show off oneself in the best possible circumstances.
The opposite would be strange. Yet it only shows an apparent truth.
The point of this series is to be off beat, where it is impossible to cheat.
The women present appear completely naked, without artifice, lying on their sofa.
They have a phone in hand that triggers a camera standing in front of the sofa.
They choose their positions and expressions freely.
The photographer does not intervene, he takes care of embellishing the scene with his device.
The other pieces of furniture in the room are absent to keep the decor simple.
These anonymous people revisit the selfie by adding their courageous sense of truth.
The exhibition is part of the Off program of the Rencontres de la photographie d’Arles 2022.
The Selfies exhibition is now off , but the series does not end, production continues.
Your Selfie by Thierry Bouët only by appointment.
