The highly-anticipated monograph by New York-based artist and photographer Petra Collins presents images of self-discovery and femininity that explore the emotional, complex intersection of life online and off. Responding to the ubiquity of social media, Collins offers images of unflinching honesty, exploring the privacies and publicities of growing up as a woman in an era where female bodies are constantly hyper-mediated by Photoshop and social media. The book includes an introductory essay by Petra Collins on censorship and social media, as well as a discussion between herself and the artist Tavi Gevinson, moderated by K8 Hardy.

Petra Collins is an artist/curator living and working in New York.

Capricious is a magazine and art book publisher based in New York, founded as a fine art photography magazine in 2004 by Swedish photographer Sophie Mörner.
