Oh My God

Is this me? That is the question Claudette van de Rakt poses in OMG it’s me, this book filled with unexpected self-portraits. It’s not really a question; because of this OMG, it’s more like an incredulous observation, expressed in contemporary app language: Oh. My. God. This is me.

This brave collection of other selfies breaks with the conventions of the selfie making person. Having the guts to break the mold of social media norms is the book’s red thread. Besides contributing her own photos and films (accessible via an app), Claudette invited female guest authors to make textual contributions. Taken together, they make OMG it’s me into a strong and contemporary gesture. An invitation to look at one’s own face and body as openly and free of judgment as is possible.
