Stranger Selfie is an Instagram-based project that uses the popular phenomenon of the selfie to create images related to the modern fixation with technology, social media, and communication. The project is meant to address themes of cultural narcissism, voyeurism, isolation and surveillance, while drawing parallels to shared humanity. Each picture represents a brief encounter with a stranger, mostly in the fast moving throngs of a giant city, often with their eyes glued to the screen of their phone.
