The Disappearing of Michelle duBois

Crosher presents works from the Michelle duBois project, a series of photographic investigations that reimagines and intervenes in the extensive amateur archive of relentless self-documentationarian, Michelle duBois. A multi-year project, Crosher calls into question our sense of photographic narrative at the end of the analog by re-photographing, scanning and re-ordering duBois’ “autoportraits” into a careful amalgam of documentary and the imagined, blurring the line between fantasy and reality.
