It’s all about me

Following on from a series of photos taken in transit, I’ve also become slightly obsessed with collecting pictures of the process of the selfie, and the overly staged portrait. Not those taken by myself, I hasten to add, but those being taken by others – especially when they are caught in the act.

Generally speaking, the capturing of the perfect self-portrait ensures that those that are involved are almost completely oblivious to someone next to them with a little camera, especially whilst they are pulling their perfect Blue Steel or just pouting manically into their phone.

From Gaudi parks to weddings, from swimming pools to Japanese temples, it’s a modern phenomenon that just keeps on giving.
