Davina Lee (director/subject): An Exploration of Self No Filter
In this age of the selfie, we are taking more photos of ourselves. But, are we taking the time to really SEE ourselves? With this film I rediscover who I am with childlike curiosity. I am exposed and vulnerable; I get to know myself physically, exploring my body with my hands. I then step back, using a mirror and the camera’s eye to see the sum of my parts. I discover the person staring back at me as if seeing her for the first time. I take a selfie #NoFilter.
