The idea: Beauty is an interesting subject. Beauty (on social media) is often highly valued when spontaneously happening, not staged. Insta-famous people want their pictures to look very pretty, and very 'oh I didn't know u took a shot'. This staged beauty, almost forced, fascinates me. It's almost a deception, telling something that isn't (completely) true. 
 By making selfies with a home made pinhole camera, with a shutter time of at least 2 minutes, I tried to take this spontaneous beauty on the edge. The irony between the snapshot and the very, very long posing I tried to use as a critique on staged beauty. 
In "In the eye of the beholder" this series was published in a small publication on beauty, together with Bobbie Wagenaar.
