Duckface can be high-fashion y’all! Art critic Jerry Saltz sat down with 12 supermodel including Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, and Ajak Deng recently and picked their brains on what they think makes a good selfie. An inspiring quote from The Vulture‘s ‘History Of The Selfie’:
Selfies come from all of us; they are a folk art that is already expanding the language and lexicon of photography. Selfies are a photography of modern life. Everyone has their own idea of what makes a good selfie. I like the ones that metamorphose into what might be called selfies-plus–pictures that begin to speak in unintended tongues, that carry surpluses of meaning that the maker may not have known were there. Barthes wrote that such images produce what he called “a third meaning,” which passes “from language to significance.”
That is some deep shit! What do you think makes a good selfie?
