Why so selfie? / by scotland symons

So if you haven't noticed by now I take a lot of selfie's and self portrait's. I know that so many have the opinion that a selfie is just to vain or silly but for me it has a different meaning all together. It reminds me of where I am, where I've been, and how Im feeling. Its almost like a journal for me cataloging my current place and state. Secretly I am a pretty solitary person and when I adventure this pictures help remind me of my self in those places and times. When it comes to my portrait work I like to use myself as the subject materI find it fun to play and understand what body position and lighting do to a persons image.   I share it with others to feel more socially connected. Its an interesting set of metal loops that my mind goes though but I though it was worth sharing.

Just wanted to share the fun and weird way my mind works and here's a few write ups on the topic that I enjoyed.
