Susiraja is an award winning Finnish photographer. Playful and anarchic, she says, “I photograph me because it is the subject I certainly know the best”. However, Susiraja’s confrontational self-portraits don’t affirm contemporary selfie conventions, rather, they radically revolutionise them. Boredpanda.com writes “Some of us use selfies as a vain form of self-expression, trying to make ourselves look richer, happier or more beautiful than we really are. Iiu Susiraja, however, turns this concept of the selfie on its head by taking brutally honest, surreal and unflinchingly funny self-portraits using her own body and other objects as props.
