“FACEBOOK BOYS” by Daniel Acosta
-“FACEBOOK BOYS” by Daniel Acosta-
“Esse est percipi aut percipere” (To be is to be seen) George Berkeley, 18thCentury-England.
Today social networking (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and globalization validate more than ever this philosophical premise of three centuries ago: you exist as long as you’re perceived.
For this project I took pictures posted by friends on their Facebook pages and do their portraits.
