Instagrammer Travels The World Sharing Photos Of Herself 'Dying' At Famous Landmarks
An Instagram model has managed to gain herself 18,000 followers by pretending to die at various locations around the globe.
Seriously, in 2019, this isn't even weird.
Stephanie Leigh has travelled the globe posting her 'Stefdies' series of shots for about three years now and wants to advertise 'how precious life is', as well as showing off her photos as representing a 'captured moment in time'.
She's originally from the USA but has been based in London for a while now. Among the places where she has played dead are the Golden Gate Bridge, San Diego Zoo, the Eiffel Tower and Buckingham Palace, the latter of which is - of course - in her adopted home town.
Recently, Leigh spoke with Mailonline and said: "I realised I wanted to continue putting something positive into the world, while at the same time using art to synthesise my feelings and thoughts regarding our impermanence on this Earth.
"The official Stefdies slogan is 'leave a mark'. I'd like to think I'm doing that."
A quick glance through her page sees the Instagrammer lying face down in a variety of incredibly scenic and famous places.
Apparently, one of her favourites isn't one that includes any massively famous locations, but one in which she lies on the deck in front of a London bus passing by and some graffiti that reads: "Fuck Brexit (I never swore before)."
Of that shot, she said: "I can't really choose a favorite, as I like them all for very different reasons, but I think the Fuck Brexit one is the most timely given the current political climate in the UK."
Yeah, it's a bit on the nose, but then again, so is Stephanie. That sort of makes it fine, right?
She continued: "I don't plan out any of my Stefdies photos. All Stefdies photos happen spontaneously in my life, and on my travels.
"What is cool about my series is there is no set end date. It continues to grow and evolve along with me organically."
So, how do people respond to a woman lying flat on her face in plain sight? Well, not as well as you'd think, apparently.
Stephanie says that in her entire 'Stefdies' career, she's only been asked if she's alright five times. To be fair, living in London that's five more times than many people would guess.
She added: "The early Stefdies photos were humour snapshots of my life - pretty much in times I was completely exhausted and amused by the situations I found myself in, and wanted to capture these moments in time."
Well, it's a nice way of adding a bit of humour, you'd have to give her that.
