75 Philly Selfies You Have to See
We persuaded pro athletes, performers, and politicians — plus a Playmate! — to share their pics. (You’ll never look at the Geator the same way again.)
It started as a social-media phenomenon: Grab a friend and your phone, make duck-faces, click and post. Then came the official dictionary definition, and an entire book of photos from Kim Kardashian (titled Selfish, of course). There’s no denying it, folks—we’re living in the Age of the Selfie. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The cameras we carry have turned us all into amateur documentarians, with even the goofiest snapshot exposing how we see ourselves and the rapidly changing world around us.
When we asked some of Philly’s most familiar faces to send us their selfies, we were blown away by the results—spontaneous, surprising, hilarious, intimate. Each portrait is revealing. But viewed together, the photos create a selfie of the city itself, and show us Philadelphians like you’ve never seen them before.
