The Stolen Scream
In early 2006 I took a self portrait showing myself screaming and posted it on my website. Fast forward to today, this once-private image is now one of the most used images of our time. What started as a low (no) budget photoshoot in my NYC apartment is now an iconic image used around the world in protests, products and advertising, or just for art. Kind of weird to say that, but my face/image became part of popular movements that brought down several world leaders, in places I never been in. Oh yeah, forgot to mention all this happened without any of my knowledge or permission. Here is the case of The Stolen Scream. (Examples can be found here).
