Image series

The word anomie is a term used to describe a condition where society provides little moral guidance to individuals. Social media has become a place where the bad behaviour of 'influencers' propagates and even caused other people to follow in their footsteps. In this case, the disillusionment occurs between the pictures posted on social media and our reactions in real life. This link between reality and the false impressions of social media are blurred, now more than ever. 

Anomiedia is an image series where their facades are stripped away to reveal the true nature behind these posts. Disguised as the very images they are meant to parody, this series is aimed at teenagers and more impressionable adults who do not see that the link between the reality of social media is not the same as the reality we live in.
