Antoine Geiger french photographer is showing his newest project named, SUR-FAKE. It [places] the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture,’ alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world.
Antoine wanted to come back to the idea of these faked identities, over-exposed, sucked by the digital gulf that breaks the relation to ‘real’, to bring back a self-focused image of the individual. What interests her the most in this texture of sucked faces, is the the over-exposure gradually allows a very organic dimension, as well as digital, to render something quite disturbing.
Some pictures from this series are even in a square format, using the standards of Instagram.
