Your dad took selfies before you did and he’s got the mirror shots to prove it. Back when Polaroid was the original Instagram, he was immortalizing his awesome in 5x7 form. He was the Picasso of portraits, and each self-exposure was his signature on a roll of film. Developers from NYC to SF knew of his iconic images that painted landscapes of living like a hurricane of a man. 

So hipsters, next time you’re picking out your filters for a quick selfie to get you through the day because you need “likes” to boost your self esteem instead of sacking up, remember this…

Your dad’s selfies weren’t vain ego stroking, they were stamps of approval on the carefully crafted work he had created.
