How did the ‘selfie’ come to be, and a better question yet- If it’s so easy to take a selfie, should it be considered art? Take a look at a great video that shows the rise of the selfie but from an art perspective.
While the actual term, “selfie” is something relatively new, the concept of taking a self-photograph is not. Artists and photographers have been taking selfies since the invention of the camera. While initially a tool for understanding how the camera worked, taking a self-photo has developed into an artistic form. The video below will take you through the history of the selfie with examples from some of the top artists in the world.
