Making the rounds today is the highly charming selfie of a young Colin Powell:
Powell’s photo has that good power a selfie can have: a picture not just of someone’s face, but, especially apparent when viewed later on, of a person’s aspirations and possibilities. For that reason it reminded me of this youthful selfie of Stanley Kubrick, which I came across a few months ago while researching mid-century Leica cameras:
Scaring that up, meanwhile, led me to this also charming photo: Kubrick and his daughter photobombing their own selfie that is also a photo of Jack Nicholson on the set of The Shining.
Game to Kubrick.
