Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview – ‘Why I Create Self Portraiture with a Smartphone’ with Violet Martins from Brazil


Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, we asked accomplished Mobile Photographer and Artist, Violet Martins from Brazil to consider and answer ‘why I create self portraiture with my smartphone’. Martins created the video below and replied in text to this thought, “The reason I take self portraitures, is because I can! I don’t have to ask and I can edit as I imagine as I go on“. I would say that knowing Martins, as I do there’s more to this than meets the eye. If we are to consider that for many, the female impulse to struggle free from social and belletristic confinement, through strategic reformulation of the individual, art and society, then through this paradigm of self portraiture we can observe how it distinctively complements female anxieties, we’ll be a little closer…

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it.
