“Selfie Harm” by Rankin shows how quick and easy it is to transform your appearance for social media. Rankin
- A new photo series shows the lengths some people go to to edit their photos for Instagram.
- The project, by renowned photographer Rankin, asked 15 British teenagers to take five minutes editing their appearances to make them “social media-ready.”
- Most of them made their noses narrower, slimmed their faces, edited out their freckles, enlarged their eyes and lips, and added makeup.
- Rankin says the project highlights that “we are living in a world of FOMO, sadness, increased anxiety, and Snapchat dysmorphia.”
