SELF: Selfies and Self Portraits Competitions

SELF: Selfies and Self Portraits Competitions

IF the ancient Greeks implored us to “know thyself” and common knowledge assures us that “a picture is worth a thousand words”, doesn’t it follow that the amalgamation of random know-nothing’s collectively called “the human race” should be CONSTANTLY photographing themselves in an effort to gain true wisdom and artistic insight? It should! And also because it’s just plain insanely inventive to do so! Just ask ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE or CINDY SHERMAN. This month 1650 goes completely SELF-CENTERED as we pay homage to the time-honored art of the SELF-PORTRAIT! And while we highly encourage you NOT to cut your ear off before snapping your own mug, we do encourage you to muster a little bit of the artistic passion that fueled a certain well-known Dutch dude’s compulsion to capture the true spirit within. So this month, whether you have a face that launched a thousand ships or you are a bit more on the JoJo the Dog-Faced Boy side of the tracks, grab a camera and crank out an image that is indisputably YOU! Because EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL in its own way and at 1650, this time, we are being TOTALLY selfish about things as we dive head first into the wonderful world of SELF-PORTRAITS and SELFIES!!!
