When Profile Photos Become High Art

Sculpture artist Jemima Brown has been drawing pictures of her friend’s Facebook profile photos since 2009. Her ongoing project called Untitled Profile Pictures features not only just attractive head shots but also the pixelated ones, the weird ones, the family ones, the artsy ones, and just the plain old “hi, this is my face” ones. With more than 200 pictures drawn, Brown uses her project to look at the social structures of relationships and technology. Why do we choose the profile photos that we do? Her series doesn’t answer any questions but provide a fascinating insight. That reminds us, we need to update my profile pic.
