Do you look most like yourself while exercising or after you’ve showered and cleaned up? Or is it all the same?
A few summers ago, famed French photographer Sacha Goldberger set up a makeshift studio near Paris’ Bois de Boulogne park and asked joggers to pose for him directly after sprinting in order to showcase all of their sweaty, breathless, sticky glory. Then he asked them to return exactly a week later — but this time, all cleaned up — to pose exactly the same way again, and using the exact same lighting.
“I wanted to show the difference between our natural and brute side versus how we represent ourselves to society,” Goldberger told My Modern Metropolis. “The difference was very surprising.”
Do you ever notice that you look or feel more like you when you’re doing some things rather than others? Take a look at these fascinating photos and decide if there are times when you, too, are most you:
