everyday month project: glasses

Name: glasses
Duration: 25.2.-25.3.2014
Type of the project: photography, selfportrait

The phenomenon of a "selfie" got my attention and brought a lot of questions. Basically, when you have the opportunity to photograph things you got two options. Photograph the external world which is the world around you or turn the camera opposite direction and photograph yourself. The first question is Why are we doing this? Is it because we want to share it with somebody we love, we want to show off (share it with bunch of annonyms on instagram) or is it that it actually brings us pleasure to photograph ourselfs? The second question is What is behind that? Is it simple boredom or is it something else?

These selfies will be connected with a purpose, which is the aim of accomplishing this everyday month project & they will be bounded by couple of rules as well: see below. During this project I will also do a little social research about selfies and ask people about it. Let's see what I find out.


1) glasses must be in the picture
2) real day, no filter, no edits
3) everytime different location
4) add description (sentence, quote,word) that really fits your current mood
5) enjoy


Maike, Germany : " Its not just lately, its since forever. People want not to be forgotten.The goal of the selfie is that people want to hear comments. They wanna hear "Oh ure sooo beautiful". 

Eddie, Malmo : "if not do it artistic, my care level is very low. But i am very pretentions as a person" , "Instagram pictures are not cool"

Martin: " Myslim ze to souvisi s narcismem a sebeprezentaci resp. Sebenaplnenim... mozna take nizkym sebevedomin... vetsinou delaji selfies hlavne asi lidi v koupelne pred zrcadlem... Pripada mi to hrozne zprofanovane hlavne diky FB, kdy tam nekdo dava selfie kazdy den..."
