If you’re going to take a series of selfies, you better make sure they’re interesting. Nobody wants to sit at the computer looking at a selfie unless it’s controversial, funny, or, let’s face it, of themselves. So with that in mind, let’s all shift our gaze to a few selfies of Iiu Susiraja, a Finnish self-portrait photographer who knows a thing or two about capturing-and keeping-our attention.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Photography on Thursday 9 October 2014

Let’s hope not. But British photographer Caulton Morris doesn’t seem to be stopping his Upside photography project anytime soon. In this project, the photographer actually uses his 10-second timer and does not process a single picture, meaning no Photoshop and what you see is what you get.

Spiders can make art, too. In fact, some might call them self-portraits. Peruvian Amazon-dwelling spider, believed to be from the genisus Cyclosa, builds elaborate spider decoys from leaves, debris, and dead insects. More to come on this spider once a permit is released to take samples.

Tajette O Halloran Reader Find

By Tajette O Halloran in New Photography on Monday 13 August 2012

I discovered Kyle Thompson’s self portrait photography a few weeks ago when I stumbled across an surreal and confronting image of a bare chested man with a rope tied around his neck with his head on fire. When you see a striking image like this it is very hard to simply keep scrolling.

Polaroid double exposure self-portraits

Jena Ardell Reader Find

By Jena Ardell in New Photography on Friday 4 May 2012

I’m part-time traveler, part-time photographer who specializes in retro photography. My Polaroid double exposure self portraits are an on-going series, created in camera, no post editing. I’ve been working with Polaroids for over five years. I like the rush of shooting self portraits with instant film. It’s a mild adrenalin: equivalent to almost missing a bus. Once I set the self timer, I have 12-seconds to jump in front of the camera and become another person. Instant film, instant acting.
