    Where can I get one of those bath tubs?

  • so this is what they mean when they say, “living in a bubble”. to me this self is in it’s comfort zone looking at the world. kind of like the internet, you’re in your pajamas and bed however exposed to endless scenes both at once. watching videos of the world.
    rad series

  • she’s quite interesting
    and the photographs are well composed

    like it (:

  • Thom

    didn’t the one contestant on work of art do this?

  • The idea is really interesting, this is like inserting privacy into public or less private places. Because these situations are not real, nobody pay attention to her and that creates a disturbance that make the viewer think about this notion of private/public space.

    I was gonna say, Young Sun from Work of Art did a self-portrait similar to the first one, except his body was naked and drenched with water, standing, instead of in a bathtub. The composition is pretty much the same too.

  • The cooperation of everyone in the photos is astounding :D

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
