To Thine Own Selfie Be True by Geoffrey Dicker

From our preoccupation with paparazzi candids to our obsession with taking selfies, we are a world hypnotized by the siren call of fame. No one knows this better than cultural commentary artist Geoffrey Dicker. His life work has been the examination of celebrity. Starting as a teenaged autograph collector in his hometown of Los Angeles, and progressing to authoring 3 books and helming his popular NYC art, music and pop culture blog, According2G.com, Dicker has deeply explored the ramifications of social media, celebrity, and self-obsession. In his latest endeavor, “To Thine Own Selfie Be True,” Dicker turns his camera lens both on himself and the famous simultaneously. His visually arresting self-portraits are celebrity candids without celebrity. Tabloids may have pronounced that the famous are “just like us,” but Dicker takes this message to a haunting and satirical extreme. As twin “selfies,” they take a humorous look at the implications of fame and social media in our culture – namely that while we worship these false idols, we secretly want to be the one everybody is chasing after.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist and co-founder Nick Zinner is currently displaying a few of his photos at Anastasia Photo in New York.  The photos are taken by Nick from the stage at YYY’s concerts. It’s a fun juxtaposition as the crowd is performing for him and not the other way around as is the case when the lights go down and the band hits the stage.
