See Photo is a multi-layered documentery film culled from amateur self-portraits from a forgotten magazine. In the surreal realm of the personal ad, women hide behind blurred focus and scribbled masks in an attempt to let their true identities still slip through in the quest for like-minded companions. A meditation on the complexities of identity and the desire for companionship.
