I sought out women who looked cute on Instagram. When I met them in real life, they were different from the characters they depict on Instagram. That’s natural, of course, for Instagram.
These women use real society and the Internet world for different purposes and are successful in both. I stripped away the social fabrications (cosmetics and fashion) the women use to compartmentalize real and online worlds and photographed their in-between point, which is neither real nor virtual.
