Portrait of selfie at Calle del Arco, Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Instagrams &emdash; Portrait of selfie at Calle del Arco, Antigua Guatemala

I know that through history artists have realised self-portraits. Also, I am aware that the people started taken self-portraits when the Instamatic or Polaroid cameras appeared, perhaps even before so. Furthermore, I am certain this practice probably increased with the appearance of point-n-shoot cameras. However, I don’t remember the self-portraits being so pervasive and omnipresent until the smartphone with a camera became mass device. Am I wrong? Can you share your impressions regarding self-portraits and selfies?
