Liminal Portraits

Lens Culture... Liminal Portraits - photographs and text by Laura Sackett. "...Liminal Portraits, chronicles my investigation into the teenage world of social networks and iChatting. Adolescence is a particularly transitional time in life, a time when teens are experimenting with and forming their identity. And with today’s wired kids, they have the opportunity to create virtual identities – every time they log on to a computer.
By creating remote images with teens using iChat on multiple computers, my project explores a new form of portraiture, one that crosses social networking technology with the project of photographic portraiture to investigate this new form of the virtual self, which, like my adolescent subject, is liminal – and constantly changing."
