Project: Broadcast Myself
A rapidly growing phenomenon in the online world is the so-called ‘beauty vlogging’. These are online videos in which young teenage girls give tips and instructions relating to beauty from their own bedroom. ‘Beauty vloggers’ can reach thousands or even millions of viewers. According to a study by software company Pixability there are currently about 14.9 million beauty-related videos that have been watched on the internet. The girls who make the video’s are mostly under the age of 18. One by one these girls have a transcribed idea of beauty. They see themselves as a role model and know exactly how to behave in front of the camera.
My thesis ‘’Dichtbij’’ (“Close”) is about photography and the role of origin.
