Selfies, an art or just a modern technology
BBC – The next time you snap a selfie with your friends on holiday or a night out – you might just be creating the next artistic masterpiece.
London’s Saatchi Gallery is planning a new exhibition to explore the importance of selfies as an art form.
It will feature not only self portraits by the likes of Vincent Van Gogh, but also more recent celebrity selfies.
Members of the public will also be invited to submit their own photos for inclusion in the exhibition.
The popularity of the selfie has rocketed since the invention of smartphones and in 2013 Oxford Dictionaries named “selfie” as their word of the year.
