The art of the selfie by Waldemar Januszczak

Thanks to Vic for putting me on to this article in the Sunday Times magazine

 

The article brings comparison from the old painting masters to selfies of today. How painter’s like Rembrandt’s self portrait’s were really about the passage of time and even in his paintings he was self-styled for the portraits, he didn’t wear in the portrait’s what he’d wear in real life, which is similar to the selfies of today in many ways.
