Have we reached Peak Selfie yet? Hopefully, if the work of Russian artist Olga Chernysheva is anything to go by. The 51-year-old has taken a series of street style photos of the backs of the heads of anonymous women wearing woolly hats. In Moscow. Unlike the usual selfie/street style shot, these images are taken without the subject realizing.
Aren’t they brilliant? The freezing temperatures over the last few days have meant that I’ve been wearing my favourite pink and red striped knitted hat – might ask Mr That’s Not My Age to recreate one of these new Belfies.
There’s a small exhibition of Olga Chernysheva’s work Keeping Sight on at Pace London until 18 January 2015.
