16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

You can’t always trust what you see. The human eye is susceptible to illusions, whether they occur naturally or are manipulated by the camera. In my photo project, I made self-portraits, and the photographs serve as representations of my emotions. Self-portraits can be regarded as mirrors that can talk about us. Through this technique, we can learn a lot about ourselves and helps us to understand our relationship with the outer world and ourselves. Self-portraiture helped me to understand and rediscover myself when I was lost between worlds.
