Philautia means self-recognition and love towards oneself. It implies the reconciliation of what one is with one’s own existence, and practicing it implies leaving aside self-pity. Self-identity is a project in several phases where Hollstein strips naked to show the development of his self-love, channeling his personal evolution in a moment of vital crisis through images in a research and reaffirmation project. A declaration of principles in the reconciliation of two identities in conflict, inalienable and complementary where philautia struggles to prevail.
This exhibition is part of the program of DOCfield Barcelona, festival fotografia documental. and LOOP Barcelona
