NOT GOING TO LIE — I think what Zilla van den Born did was hilarious, and brave. In a world where people now judge your travel prowess based on how hardcore your selfies are, it comes as no surprise to me that people will start photoshopping themselves into exotic locations. Zilla, a graphic designs student living in Amsterdam, tricked friends and family into thinking she had taken a 5-week trip to Thailand by staging photos around her neighborhood, or manipulating herself into other people’s photos.

“I did this to show people that we filter and manipulate what we show on social media…” she said to The Daily Mail. “My goal was to prove how common and easy it is for people to distort reality. Everyone knows that pictures of models are manipulated, but we often overlook the fact that we manipulate reality also in our own lives.”

It makes me think twice about what we see in travel photography as well — is it the real picture of a place? How has it been modified to look more appealing than it actually is? You can see more of Zilla’s “behind the scenes” photoshop tricks here.
