“Selfie Post” (Dig the title?)





Now, here’s the thing. I have looked at a few of these posts from my peers, and in accordance with what I gathered from (Rettberg), instead of trying to analyze several individual pictures, I’m going to talk about this series of selfies and their respective, cumulative story. I met my fiance this last February. Every time she would leave my house, I would walk her to her car through my garage, and without fail I would have her stop, I would pull out my phone and snap a picture of us. I told her I wanted something to hold onto, even when she wasn’t there. These are the best types of selfies to have, and sharing them is a vulnerable experience because these WEREN’T taken several times until they were what we considered to be an appropriate self representation, and they aren’t filtered. I have quite a few of these selfies, and these ones tell an actual story, not a dramaturgic one. And just in case it isn’t obvious, this particular retrospective, but cumulative story – is of us falling in love.
