The “selfie.” I kind of cringe every time I hear that word, imagining Myspace-style angles, duck faces, peace signs and dirty mirrors. I’m not alone either. Many are hesitant to take and share photos of themselves, for fear of looking vain, vulnerable or being scrutinized.┬áBut before the rise of social media, sharing of self-portraits also pre-dates the internet. The 1860s saw huge popularity for the sharing of cartes de visite – little photocards. Even the photo booth dates back as far as 1880, and attracted groups of friends much as it does today.┬áBut as social-media sites requiring a profile picture gained popularity, so, too, did the self-taken photograph. Wear this tee and never hesitant to take and share photos of ourselves!
