Finnish Woman Creates Controversial Self Portraits, Calls It Art

Some of us use selfies as a vain form of self-expression, trying to make ourselves look richer, happier or more beautiful than we really are. Finnish photographer Iiu Susiraja, however, turns this concept of the selfie on its head by taking brutally honest, surreal and unflinchingly funny self-portraits using her own body and other objects as props.

“Posing, creating a fashion-conscious and outgoing image is the modern person’s catechism,” an art critic writes on Susiraja’s website. “Susiraja turns this ideology of success upside down and laughs as she does it.”
