Selfie has become a heat spot in the academy. Many scholars have examined the topic in the context of new media. For instance, Brooke Wendt conducts a case research on Instagram and discusses how and why selfie has become one of the most important communicating ways of modern people. Sarah Gram (2013) starts from a gender perspective to analyze the inner relationship between selfie and specific groups.
The concern on self- photography mostly focuses on practice. For example, Thayer (1991) discusses how booth and method are used in self photography. Nevertheless, Jerry Saltz (2014) conducts a detailed research on the history of the selfie, providing important cases to analyze how selfie evolves from one of the oldest human behavior: recording the image of self. However, his article does not discuss the topic from the perspective of gender and does not mention some important female photographers acclaimed of their creation in self- photography (James, 2014).
This essay upholds the tradition of qualitative content analysis widely used in this field. Weber states that content analysis enables researchers to “organize large quantities of text into much fewer content categories to make inferences from text” (Weber, 1990: 9).
The essay will conduct a case research on female photographers such as Nan Goldin and Cindy Sherman to analyze the creation way and characteristics of self-photography created by female professionals. Then it will discuss the characteristics of selfie based on critical literature review. Lastly, it will conduct a comparative study on self-photography and selfie both are taken by women, discussing what the common points and differences of the two types of works are.
Limitations and Problems
Limited by time and energy, this essay inevitably has some limitations and problems.
Firstly, without a quantitative analysis, the comparison between self-photography and selfie can be highly subjective.
Secondly, limited by length, the article does not conduct a visual analysis on the works, which are highly helpful for the readers to understand the information that are not directly conveyed by the pictures.
