Self-portraits are nothing new--Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Frida Kahlo (to name a few) been there, done that. But those people had mad skills! Nowadays, utter amateurs are shooting themselves and damaging their own images. You want a selfie to show your best self, right? As a popular meme has it: Believe In Your Selfie. Fortunately a London school is offering a modern update to self portrait training. They call the class The Art of Self Portraiture--though students refer to it as "That iPhone Selfie class." Over 30,000 Londoners take classes at CityLit, the #1 adult education institution in Europe.
The course promises a place to "improve your critical understanding of the photographic self portrait, on this introductory course, and develop your ideas to produce a coherent body of work." So next year when Facebook gives you back your year in the life of you, you look good. Selfie sticks not included.
