What explains the importance of Selfies in our image obsessed culture? Maybe it’s a sign that we are becoming ever more self-obsessed, or perhaps this as a positive means of creative self-expression. After all, human have always been interested in seeing their own faces so this isn’t new thing.
Selfie is slang for Self-Portrait. It is used today to describe a photographic self-portrait taken on a mobile device and shared via social media. The popularity of social media sites like Instagram and Snapchat have made posting Selfies very popular. The term 'selfie' was included in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2013. In the same year, it was also announced as 'word of the year'. However, the ‘Selfie’ can be traced right back to the origins of photography. One of the first things photographers did when they learned how to work a camera was to turn it on themselves. Perhaps if we understood how significant self-portraits have been in history, we might take a different view on the selfie.
The Saatchi Gallery in London launched an exhibition claiming it to be the world’s first exhibition exploring the history of the selfie. It was celebrating a form of expression often criticised for being empty, boring or pointless. So, rather than dismissing the trend, maybe we’re better off seeing selfies for what they are at their best. They are a kind of visual diary, a way to mark our life and hold it up to others as proof that we were here.
A self-portrait is art featuring the artist as the subject and there are examples stretching back to ancient times. As artists became more independent, during the Renaissance period, they began to make more self-portraits. It was as a way of celebrating their own status. When photography was 'invented' (the 1830s) it was largely influenced by painting and other 2D arts. Self-Portraits in art can be 2 or 3 dimensional.
Today, the self-portrait is a thriving thanks to smart phones and social media. Since self-portraiture has a long history in art, it's no surprise that the selfie shares some similarities with painting. Although a photograph can be made much quicker than an oil painting.
