Selfies are a lot sadder when you think of them as your alonies…
Social media sites are making us narcissistic, hence we possess a personality disorder that involves a preoccupation with ourselves and how we are perceived by others.
We pursue gratification from vanity and from the admiration of our own physical and intellectual attributes.
The truth is that we will never see a photograph of ourselves that looks like the self we imagine ourselves to be. So just go ahead, take a selfie and fake a life.
H. G. Robert’s book, #Selfies, explores “the selfie(ish) syndrome” via 33 colored ink selfies, each captioned with a 5-7-5 humorous senryū poem. Foreword by art critic, Cinqué Hicks.
