SEAN FADER

United States 1979

In today's media-saturated environment, where the private is regularly broadcast as public, we are constantly reminded that social media is altering our capacity to know others. My work attempts to undermine the dissociative, alienating, and distancing aspects of social media and photography by creating the space for real-life, personal exchange—all with an ironic wink to the viewer—using the facade of self-obsessed reality TV and selfie culture. I put my queer male body between the framework of photography, performance, social media identities, and Internet celebrity culture to make space for sincerity in the heart of the social media spectacle.
