Whatever you take the selfie as - an expression of vanity, an act of self-acceptance, cringeworthy Insta fodder - the photographer's face as the overwhelming focus of a picture is hardly a contemporary phenomenon. This video traces how the selfie has been a component of photography ever since the form's inception, whether as a test of technology, a way to experiment and channel influences or for the user's posterity.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
