#Selfie: The Year of Self-Portraits


Published on

This is the year of self portraits, also commonly known as a Selfie. Selfies are a growing phenomenon in today’s society. It is quite difficult to walk down the street without seeing somebody taking a selfie on their smartphone on snapchat, or uploading it to facebook, Instagram, or twitter. While some say that selfies have had a negative impact on people such as body dissatisfaction or lowering self-esteem, I personally feel the opposite way. My flip book was created to examine the growing selfie trend in a positive light. Enjoy!
