“I am the past”

Kees de Graaff sent these self-portraits to How to be a Retronaut. Over to Kees:

“For me, photography began in 1425 with the italian painter Tommaso Masaccio. Today, everything is photography. Not only the way we capture the world and ourselves but also the way we perceive ourselves and the world. Yet we forget that seeing reality through the lens of a camera is a choice we, en masse, have made.  There are other choices”
