Unreleased Selfies, 2021

Photo printed on transparent sheet, transparent plexiglass frame

12.3 × 7 CM (36 × 27 CM framed)

Scarce Edition of 9

+2 APS

BY Ben Eliott

Unreleased Selfies is an ongoing series of selfies that were never published on my social networks, printed on 0.75 mm polycarbonate sheets. 12.3 x 7 cm — the size of a 5.5’’ smartphone screen.



They are selfies that I originally took for my Instagram. I never published them because they were not good enough or because they were outtakes of other selfies. It is a kind of behind-the-scenes of my posts.



I like the fact that you can only properly see these pictures in the context of an exhibition, while they were initially made in order to be accessible anytime and anywhere online.
