Selfies are basically a medium where the subject can present herself to the gaze. The apparent personality and privacy of selfies is indicative of the penetration of the omnipresent Gaze and Other. We don’t need to go to Macy’s and use their backdrop to have our picture taken anymore, we can do so in our bedroom. Seemingly, then, we have complete control over the nature of the selfie. But we reproduce the Gaze by acting by ourselves to police our selfies to be acceptable. There is no position outside of the Gaze
“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
"These are the last known photographs or videos of a person. At times, last words from a text, Tweet, Facebook post, etc. may fit the bill, if it gives what appears to be or is believed to be the last or close to last thoughts of a person. Also, the last picture taken by a person just before their death is acceptable as well."

Anonymous asked: You should post a pic of yourself from a normal frontal angle rather than that high angle. I'm not trying to bring you down, you're still very good looking, but I just feel like you only take pics from that angle because you're hiding something...
I think it’s really weird and obsessive that people are preoccupied with angles of girl’s selfies because they are terrified we are “hiding” something awful about our physical appearance by posing for pictures and angling cameras to take pictures, that’s how cameras work you dumb cunt, they rely 100% on lighting and angles. I don’t understand what is so hard to get that thru your fucking Neanderthal skull. A camera is rendering your multidimensional BODY into a FLAT PIXELATED IMAGE. Do you GET THAT IDIOT. It is A COMPLETE DISTORTION, and if you don’t look like a Picasso painting from a straight on angle on an apple camera you are probably misshapen irl. And if you’re obsessed with my hidden deformity disguised by expert maneuvering of selfie angles using a relatively decent grade camera then scour my archives and find the numerous pics of my face “straight on” you fucjing freak
