Long before the phenomenon ‘selfie’ became a commonly used instrument for attention seekers pursuing massive reach, Krimsky made countless, almost obsessive, self-portraits to document himself and the changes of his body. The self-portraits and different journeys that Borsboom undertook to follow her/him produced a penetrating portrait.
Boi, Song of a Wanderer resulted in a documentary film and eponymous book (design SYB). In light of the Gay Pride 2014, a selection of self-portraits were shown at the Foam Café. In addition, the book is presented at Foam.
