“Selves” is a co-creative photographic project by Elin Berge. Between 16th and 20th of October Elin Berge opens her studio in Umeå, Sweden, for people who want to take their self-portrait. The images are made in black and white and all in full body. Elin Berge is there for technical and artistic support, but what to bring in the picture, how to look and pose is entirely up to the person. There is only one rule: each person can only take one single shot. The result of the images will be presented at the Sune Jonssons Center for Documentary Photography in the fall of 2014. Selves is a part of the common project VODA, who has been given support by Umeå2014 European Capital of Culture.
