#selfie | NEW YORK, USA 2018
The most psychedelic place I’ve ever been to is the Times Square in New York. After ascending from the dimly Metro station for the first time I found myself surrounded by gigantic neon signs with moving pictures and thousands of people – a total sensory overload.
After acclimatizing by simply standing still for a while my focus wandered from the dazzling capitalist promises on the walls to the potential consumer on the ground. Basically all people on the spot, mainly tourists, had one thing in common: they all were absorbed by taking selfies. Again, and again, and again. I rarely observed a situation where the surrounding was perceived solely through the mobile screen. I guess such an iconic place is just irresistible to make that iconic photo, and through it become an icon yourself.
