self/same/other brings together artworks drawn from the M(M)A’s permanent collection that present diverse ways of exploring self-imaging and subjectivity through different types of photo-based media. Expanding the genres of portraiture and self-portraiture, together these images reveal how the camera and its reproducible technologies is used to explore changes in bodily perception and identity in art and mass culture across time.
