Social media expose almost every aspect of our lives: Facebook reports worldwide what we do, Twitter shows everyone what we read, Instagram globally spreads our pictures and video, LinkedIn reveals our professional interests etc. I believe that looking at variety of new things which came to existence thanks to social media can be a good source of inspiration. It isn’t difficult to guess that the collection “Selfie” was inspired by self-portraits of girls from social medias. I try to show that today’s human is absolutely addicted to social networks. Many online friends, millions of “likes” and thousands of followers make us feel superstars.
We are a narcissistic generation – “Generation MeMeMe”. We are very self-centered – we speak only about ourselves, we take pictures mostly of ourselves, we care too much about our social profile. Whereas I think we need to stop looking around and look into our inner world instead. There is incredible beauty in just being yourself.
All parts of collection are produced by me.
