Play that title in your head to the tune of ‘Barbie Girl‘ (sorry about that). We are living in a selfie world, where photographs go from crude to downright rude, and often have as much substance as a Barbie girl (that was almost poetry, rhyme, or maybe not). Now selfies aren’t necessarily a new invention, depending on your definition and the circumstances. Some suggest that self-portraits (as in the photography sense) are the same as selfies and therefore any early self-portrait can be classed as a ‘selfie’ and so nothing is new. I’m not really sure that such an interpretation applies, as I think there’s a lot more differentiating self-portraits, especially ones from yesteryear, and the selfies of today’s culture.
