Looking at social media, you can find a lot out about a person, or at least what they want you to see. We see perfect strangers living seemingly perfect lives, yet they struggle in ways that they don’t show. I want to focus on perfection and imperfection at the same time in a portrait.

My series of perfectly imperfect strangers each have a story or their own, made from images that I find of people on social media. I am inspired by my own struggles and anxieties and portray them onto these strangers as a way of connecting to the audience in an indirect way.
