Amid the bared midsections and flawless smiles flashed all so often on the screen comes the explosion of the ugly selfie, a sliver of authenticity in an otherwise filtered medium. Take a tour through Selfie.im, the adolescent-dominated selfie-sharing app for the iPhone, and you won’t find pouted lips but close-up shots of double chins, insides of mouths, makeup-less pores, exaggerated toothy growls and duck lips zoomed in so close that they look grotesque.
Thanks for the mention, NYTimes. Although in our opinion — there are no ‘ugly’ selfies. There’s showing off and there’s being authentic.
SelfieIM - authenticity :)
