Teen Squad Selfie Project

Mind, Body, Selfie

Summer 2016

This four-session workshop explored the key factors that affect positive body image and self-esteem.

Teens created a series of selfie-portraits that meaningfully depicted their own identity, using fashion and theater techniques to present themselves to the world in the ways they wanted to be seen. Participants learned a variety of skills including phone holding techniques to get the right composition, lighting, body positioning and posture, image sizing, and filter effects.
