The True Self // 2019
The True Self is a reaction to Instagram deleting pictures that contain nipples or genitals. This photo series shows the true human according to Instagrams policy. The rather disturbing images are self-portraits.
This project turned out to be an emotional rollercoaster, ignorantly enough Rosa thought she could just create a cool looking project without considering the consequences of using her own body. During the process an emotional awareness arose causing her to feel unease when she would look at the images. This made her realise that the photo series shouldn’t only be self-portraits but also images of other people.
Rosa Zwiers: concept, graphic design, photography.
