Are Selfies “Art?”

img_6115Is a selfie a work of art? I absolutely believe it is. The different self portraits I saw at the museum made me realize that just because our culture is digitalized now more than ever doesn’t mean photos taken from phones and cameras aren’t works of art. Just like there is a deeper meaning behind a painting, specifically a painting of an individual, there is also a meaning behind a selfie taken from a camera. While painting, an artist tries to make the model look their very best, working carefully with different colors and techniques. That is what went into painting those older paintings in the museum. In the modern world, we try to look our best in selfies, adjusting the lighting and adding filters to enhance the picture. A photo, whether it is a selfie or not, is considered art in my eyes. #RuSelfieProject
