In defense of taking pictures of yourself
To begin, I want to consolidate the more obvious, surface reasons why I take photographs of myself :
2. Some sort of pivotal moment or experience has occurred, and I want to document it.
3. I’m wearing a new outfit that I want to remember.
4. I’m at a loss for anything else to upload to Instagram.
5. I have a vision I want to fulfill photographically—y’know, just art stuff—and I am my
most available model.
At the crux of my selfie habit is a need to solidify myself in time, and ultimately, the desire for people to know I exist.
