#selfie

Maybe she’s born with it; maybe it’s Amaro/Mayfair/Rise/Hudson/Valencia/X-ProII/Sierra/Willow/ Lo-Fi/Earlybird/Sutro/Toaster/Brannan/Inkwell/Walden/Hefe/Nashville/1997/Kelvin. The subtext of the “selfie” generates more social pressure than one would think. What appears to be a simple self-portrait is actually a tool for tailoring our personas in whatever way we desire. As we cultivate our digital image, we’re expected to capture the same allure as our latest Instagram photo. At the end of the day we’re left wondering: are we taking a selfie or is the selfie taking us?
