The online self-representation began with texts. Blogs, messaging platform, tweets. Later, social media posts started to support a certain need to express ourselves and engage with larger audiences. A clear visual shift, which started soon after mobile devices became the main vehicle through which we document our everyday life and shape our digital representation.
With part of the Generation Z (born 1997-2012) and the whole Generation Alpha (early 2010 - mid-2020s) being the first people in human history to have full consciousness of their image and own portrayal since a very young age, how mobile phones and the digital environment are influencing the perception of the self and the way we live? How mobile phones are mediating our identity through images or simply shaping our persona? What does it mean “to be present” in a digital world base on representation?
With this open call, we wish to reflect on these relevant aspects and invite you to engage with inevitable questions. We are looking for photographs that could help us document and understand this constantly evolving phenomenon. Images that can provoke new reflection to understand how the millenary human fascination for representation and self-representation is approaching this digital era.
Please bear in mind to always credit the photographers every time you post an image.
