Selfie, Phil Scorza Jan 2016

Selfie, Phil Scorza

Northwestern Review

This body of work is comprised of a series of portraits that the artist photographed during the summer of 2014.

For the project, he questioned each participant before shooting their portrait, asking them what their relationship is to the church and then asking them to describe their relationship with God.

Scorza’s interpretation of their answers to these questions and the conversations that followed informed how he needed to shoot their portrait. The resulting imagery, or portraits, is a visual representation of the inward self-reflection these individuals shared – a selfie.
