It is interesting when you think about ‘selfies’, the word of the year adopted by the Oxford Dictionary in 2013. From the early days of photography, photographers have taken photographs of themselves. Hippolytee Bayard, created photography’s first self portrait in 1840. He actually portrayed himself as a drowned man. It is said he created this image in response to what he interpreted as a waste of his extensive research when the French government overlooked his efforts in preference of Daguerre’s process. Bayard’s selfie is interesting because it is a deliberate attempt at creative expression. Of course, since then many photographers have created selfies as an artistic expression. We’re going to be taking a closer look at selfies here at theappwhisperer discussing how photography is used nowadays, we’ll let you know the links to the discussion over the coming week. For now, enjoy this breathtaking showcase.
If you would like your work to be considered for entry into our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr showcase, please submit it to our dedicated group, here. Alternatively if you’re an Instagram user just tag your images with #theappwhisperer and we’ll pick you up.
