The camera became an intimate object for me during my teens and early 20s. The pictures reflect me being uncomfortable with my body and exploring who I was and what my body constituted. My identity changed a lot and I felt like a contortionist as I updated photographs of myself on blogs and social networking websites. The story begins in 2004 when I moved to San Francisco. I was naive and pretentious and from Orange County, California. After surrounding myself with radical queers and vegan straight edge anarcho-punks and hardcore bands, the story ends in 2007, feeling aware, having left San Francisco, but feeling like I lost my identity in the process.
