The art of making selfies at nursing home De Bogt-Westerbeer

What happens when a group of teenagers have a special ‘selfie encounter’ with residents of a nursing home? Unseen Photo Festival, in collaboration with youth platform de PIT and Foam, present The art of making selfies. Youngsters of de PIT and residents of nursing home De Bogt-Westerbeer formed pairs and worked on modern self-portraits doing this project. The initiative was led by the Dutch photographer Willem Popelier, who is known for placing selfies in the tradition of portraiture. Unlike a normal “selfie”, the camera was in the hands of the other, whilst the portrayed one remained the director of the image.
