“A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.”
That’s the definition Oxford Dictionaries has given the word ‘selfie.’ They honored the word in 2013 as ‘word of the year.’
Whether its art or not the selfie is the affirmation of self-love. It’s the individual’s need to be recognized, which is nothing new – watching your friends and family make faces and mug for their own cell phone camera is never going to go away.
The photo you’re looking at was taken by Jelena Janković at a concert in Croatia
