Vintage Selfies

So, I suppose they made sense before cell phones, right? And after all, if you wanted to take a saucy self-portrait, you couldn’t very well bring your roll of film to the drug store for prints. Of course, Polaroids have been around since the 1950’s…

Above is a truly iconic and often-seen photo by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2011-2012 print campaign. Below? Well, that one’s called (no surprise here) “Fotobooth” from the Japan Diaries, a photo suite by BJ and Richeille Formento, the successful fashion, editorial and art photography team known as Formento + Formento (formento2.com). The non-too-subtle message relayed by that pair of stockings’ seams is one thing. But it might make you wonder what the fotobooth photos themselves will be. Ahh, the indulgence of art.
