This is the beginning of an exploration into how the ubiquitous cell phone camera has changed the way we tell our stories. The cell phone has turned everybody into a photographer and social media has given us all a venue in which to showcase our work. Has the way we present ourselves on social media changed the way we tell our stories or changed the stories themselves?

Sifting through the 6000 or so pictures I’ve taken since buying my first iPhone,

I present my life as it happened.

Or how I’d like to think it happened.

Or how I’d like you to think it happened.
