WILLEMIEKE KARS

SELF-PORTRAIT is inspired by the young women who make portraits of each other with their Smartphones. Their poses are often picture perfect copies of models in fashion magazines. Images to which they are so constantly exposed, that the poses seem to become natural. These observations are documented in this series, shot at different beaches in and around Cape Town; the setting where by coincidence our visual culture is recreated by western fashion brands every summer.
