Sad Selfies

I selfie, therefore, I exist.

The Sad Selfies are a series of 150 photographs I took while travelling Europe alone in the summer of 2015.  Although I enjoyed the marvellous opportunity I had to travel, I found myself quite lonely and missing home.  Creating a ritual for myself of taking a sad selfie in front of the monuments of Europe helped me feel less alone- I became a participant in the tourist culture, while at the same time, mocking the Selfie practice of documenting one’s travels. In a way, this is a more honest (and humorous) portrayal of travelling alone.
