#3: Our Selfies, Ourselves
In this episode of Decipher Podcast, a story about the pressure of selfies and a discussion on selfie culture.
Lauren tells a story about feeling self-conscious as a young girl taking photos and how that has evolved as she has grown up. She ties in the cultural reputation and impact of selfies — specifically the high profile Instagram model, Essena O’Neil, who quit social media after feeling overwhelmed by crafting the perfect image. Following this, we discuss selfies and what they mean to us individually and break down whether the selfie is an art form or driven purely by vapidity.
