Social media has done good things and some not so good things for our society and culture. While it offers quick communication and live happenings in real time, breaking news and events, there are many who would say its produced, or accelerated a “look at me now” approach to everything – we beat around the bush of pointing our fingers at the self proclaimed “selfie queen” (Kim you-know-who). However when a camera is put in the hands of a talented individual the lowlie selfie can become much more than that.
The lovely Daria Werbowy, has been dabbling in turning the photography lens on to herself, having been in front of it professionally for so long, fans we are sure would love to see how she perceives herself. This is not just a haphazard snap with the iphone, but well thought out and planned fashion photography. Daria did a “selfie” campaign for the French fashion wear company Equipment last summer (2014) and has had a very active instagram account of more of her personal work – this is her actual account, not one of the all too numerous fan accounts – Daria Werbowy Instagram – Dot Willow.
