The pictures I took represent “Why do we take selfies? Is society too obsessed with their appearance?”. I have students/ teenagers taking selfies and fixing their appearance in the school mirrors. These pictures bring to light that most teenagers are obsessed with their appearance and want the approval of other people. What I want people to realize is that even though we seek positive approval from others, we should not get too caught up in that headspace and instead we should not be too critical of our flaws but bring attention to our prominent features.  Sometimes doing things for ourselves is just enough to bring pleasure.
