Take a Selfie in August

Selfie | Photo by Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol’s first selfie may not have scored any likes back in the day, but the flattering shot has become a cult classic. The iconic pop artist’s “Self-Portrait,” made in 1963-64, was created using an image of Warhol originally snapped in a New York photo booth. The artist famously declared, “in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” a prediction that foresaw the rise of social media, reality TV and the wild west of internet virality. By the way Andy Warhol’s first self-portrait (above) sold in a London auction for $7.7 million in June of this year. Your selfie may never gain the fame, or be worth as much as Warhol’s, but you never know. Participate in this month’s theme and see what happens.

Upload up to five of your images to the club’s Monthly Photo Theme flickr® group.
