Communication technology facilitates communication between individuals or groups who are not physically present at the same location. Photography has become an essential component of online communication through the growth of photo sharing websites and social networks such as MySpace and Facebook. Show Your Face is a suite of photographs that examines the self-portrait in contemporary culture. The self-portrait has increasingly become a part of our everyday vernacular. In this typology the profile photo is used as the new form of ID. Shot in a consistent, repetitive manner, this collection focuses not only on the on the documentation of a technological device, but more specifically the image shown on the screen that represents the personal identity of the user.
