Vava Venezia

Translation in progress

My name is Vava Venezia.

Like every women I'm full of insecurities and yet I'm very strong as a person. I take these self portraits to search for the woman outside of me, the women reflected in the mirror.

And only by reaching out “selfishly" I have learned to like my self and learned to be compassionate towards myself. This is a strength I have gained by doing my selfies.

Everybody do selfies today, and I believe selfies is a way that people do without knowing that they are actually connecting with some kind of self love, that lift up themselves.

I like to play with the different stereotypes that the world of men have given women. I do feel naturally sexy in everyday life, and strong in front on my own camera lens, while I'm in fact extremely shy.

I act out privately, what I never would dear to act out so bluntly in public. But most of all its a sex and self exploration, a search for the woman inside of me.Im trying to be brave and provocative. I am a true voyeur of myself.

The woman I today have become by being bombarded by the mass media vision of a woman, the fashion worlds vision and the view that most men have when looking at the photos I have taken in my privacy that I now expose to the world, in order to see the reaction.

And maybe in that process, I might find out who I am, and who I want to be.

After all I have the right to choose don't I ?

A women is as beautiful as she sees herself in her mirror and that includes the so called selfie.
