Turning the Camera on Yourself

 Self-perception and how others perceive us, what's the link? Jen Davis turned the camera on herself, letting the world in on personal moments, insecurities, desires. It is a brave thing to do in a society that values thinness & beauty. 

I found her self-portraits to be both thought-provoking and embarrassing because I've been "there". I know I can't do what she has.  Taking a quick scroll through my facebook newsfeed, I doubt many of us would be able to do so. Facebook is riddled with "our" best pictures, best poses and conveyances of happiness. But where are the dark things? the real things?
