Note: Contains nudity.

Marco Onofri (b. 1973) is a photographer living in Cesena, Italy, whose new photographic series “Followers” explores the voyeuristic landscapes of daily social media. People share personal images of themselves, unaware of whose eyes may be watching. By removing the barrier of the computer screen, Onofri reveals the strangeness of this relationship. Bodies (mostly those of women) are put on exhibition in rooms full of gawking audiences. Bereft of intimacy, the observers’ callous gazes assess the nude figures as consumable commodities, late-night curiosities, and objects of envy.
