#selfies documents Harry Woodrow’s ongoing project of taking selfies whilst wearing a specially constructed reflective helmet. The artist becomes a mirror, so in each ‘selfie’ the viewer sees the mirrored box, the iPhone taking the photograph, and the photograph being taken within its screen. The book is illustrated with 82 examples of these recursive images, which Woodrow has been posting on a dedicated Instagram account since 2015.
#Selfies includes a conversation between Woodrow and curator and writer Nora Arrhenius Hagdahl on the role of the selfie in contemporary society, and an essay by artist and writer David Price.
