White Cell collects 700 of the 3,000 self-portraits that the French artist took in two months – 50 a day – during the spring of 2022. The photographer’s self-imposed rules for taking these pictures were: “I am inside the box, I am dressed in white, I am barefoot and I have to release the shutter myself.”

These playful and at times disturbing self-portraits are a homage to the work of 1970s performance artists such as Vito Acconci and Bruce Nauman and a cruel reminder of our constant and exhausting compulsion to use photography to prove we exist.
