The mass of selfies

Selfies come from all of us; they are a folk art that is already expanding the language and lexicon of photography. Selfies are a photography of modern life—not that academics or curators are paying much attention to them. They will, though: In a hundred years, the mass of selfies will be an incredible record of the fine details of everyday life. Imagine what we could see if we had millions of these from the streets of imperial Rome.

I’m a practitioner of the mirror subset of selfies, thanks to some musculoskeletal alignment incompatibility issues with front-facing cameras. Also short fucking arms.
