Why I Hate ‘Selfies’

I hate ‘selfies,’ as a term, because it’s a stupid word that minimises the grand and long standing tradition of artists making self portraits – a tradition that has reason and method and intention and that has transferred into the photographic age.

I don’t ‘take selfies,’ I fecking well ‘make’ self portraits. Composed, considered, constructed, often ironic, self portraits – damn it!
