Snap Dysmorphia

Social media filters are fun! You can look like a puppy dog, add lip fillers, or look just hot!

Most social apps allow the user to alter their appearance in an instant and conform to an unrealistic and often unattainable standard of beauty.
When you alter a photo and the result is a you-but-better-version staring back, you may start to get in your head that that’s what you should look like.
Cosmetic doctors are noticing an uptick in people who are bringing face-tuned, filtered and, otherwise altered photos into their offices, calling it Snapchat Dysmorphia.

For this series, I wanted to highlight the disconnect between reality, mirror images, and selfies by using the filters offline; printing them, painting them on my face, or replacing them with a similar-looking object.
