Can The ‘Selfie’ Redefine Beauty?
Just couple of months ago ‘Selfie’ was chosen as the word of the year by the Oxford English Dictionary. Now that pretty much everyone have a camera in their pocket, taking self portraits is easier than ever. It seems like everyone are doing it, and you can see it all over social media. The thing is – because the subject controls everything about the creation of the image – from posing to angle of shooting, it’s easy for them to hide things they don’t like. In this beautiful short film, Dove shows girls how including their insecurities in their selfies can change their opinions about their own beauty.
The short film was directed by Academy Award-winnning filmmaker Cynthia Wade and produced by Sharon Liese. The photographer leading the Selfie class is Michael Crook.
