The Social Network


Nicolas Ritter is a student in visual communication. Hi series ‘The Social Network’ stages the most banal aspects of Facebook and other social networks. Thoush it is not his aim to take position but to show different facettes with an ironic twist. His pictures illustrate with abstract, methaporical photographs the popular Facebook slang. The viewer is invited to make his own estimation looking at the scenery taking place on that surreal stage. The protagonists turn into actors, and transform to a designed image just as their profile on facebook is nothing but a designed image lacking the possibility to look each other in the eye.
