Why are these considered self-portraits instead of selfies? How much does the physical preparation and conceptual (idea) planning play a role in the audience’s (you) perception of these images? Does the label (self-portrait or selfies) effect our perception of these images? Does the label elevate these into “art”? Who decides what label to give these images?
