Photo Friday: Selfie

The “selfie”—which Urban Dictionary defines as “a picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website—is everywhere today. From Facebook to the Oscars, everyone is snapping pictures of themselves yet the selfie is not a new idea. People have been fascinated with producing images of themselves since the invention of photography in the 1800s. The April 4, 2014 Photo Friday at the Center for Creative Photography presents a variety of self-portraits by artists in the Center’s fine art photography collection.
