The concept of the selfie goes back before the social media age. There have many been forms of self portraiture throughout the history of art drawing, painting and sculpture. What has also been consistent is that, when approaching female portraiture, it has mostly been under a male gaze: art work made by men, for men. The dynamic between the viewer and the viewed -the power struggle that occurs when there is a difference in intentions between the receptor and the creator of the gaze- is still present today when there are so many seemingly democratic outlets for self portraiture. Questions about representational ownership arise in an age when the public eye is omnipresent in our lives given the virtual spaces we rule them by.
