The Public Domain Review announces recently that the word ‘selfie’ (digital self-portrait) has been recognized by the Oxford Dictionaries as their word of 2013.   The PDR also posts what is believed to be the first ‘selfie’ in early photography.  See the link below for information on this ‘modern’ thinker and photographer of the image above, Robert Cornelius.
