Work // #Instagay
#Instagay is a project on the ‘selfie’ phenomenon, made popular on social media websites such as Instagram. It is a label used by young, gay men wanting attention; they’re on the hunt for ‘likes’.
The photographs are reconstructed versions of their smartphone uploads to Instagram, and represent these boys’ vision of their best look. They aim to be provocative, eye-catching, and to take it to the next level. In actuality these photographs rise the question; how much skin do I have to show in order to get ‘likes’?
#Instagay is an on-going project. More of this series can be viewed at my portfolio website; www.witteruimte.nl
