When Montreal-based photographer Véronique Duplain started out in her photography career back in 2014, she decided to take one self-portrait per day during the month of February. After the intense effort, she decided to keep the series going. Fast-forward six years, and her “Selfie Project” has grown to be an impressive body of work that captures her development as an artist.
In creating her “selfies,” Duplain is in charge of all aspects of the productions: the ideas, the setups, the styling, the modeling, the lighting, the photography, and the editing.
Each self-portrait features a different playful — and often thought-provoking — theme or idea.
Here’s a 6-minute mini-documentary about Duplain’s work by the Montreal gallery Arsenal Contemporary Art, where the photographer did a residency this past year.
