This is a project concerning the differences in perception of ourselves: what we think versus what our friends think. This project enunciates the stark contrast between these perceptions. With the help of the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science Photography Club, I brought together eight subjects: seven students (myself included) and a teacher at MSMS. These portraits show how misconstrued, and perhaps even wrong, our ideas of ourselves can be.
First, the subjects came in with a list of their insecurities, which were written on their bodies.
After washing off their insecurities, the subjects brought in their friends, who wrote positive things on them. The subjects then reacted to what their friends said as they read them aloud.
