polaroid self portraits - who we are versus who we want to be

An intimate look at my life through 1970’s flavor Polaroids.

This was sort of an interesting project on how I actually want to view myself (the romanticized photos in costumes and backdrops) versus how I actually am, (the photos in my apartment or daily life). Humans are so incredibly multi faceted, I’m discovering that I can be all of these things at once, and that is an overwhelming state of realization in a world that prefers a manicured, “aesthetic” representation of people.
