Archive of selfies taken by one man next to celebrities on the street in New York during the mid 2010s (judging by the handful of captions, most dated 2014), presumably on disposable cameras.
[NYC Celebrity Selfie Photo Archive]
The photographer was clearly quite committed to this hobby, finding celebrities at public events or simply walking on the street; he uniformly smiles in the photos, and in many gives a thumbs up. Displaying varying degrees of enthusiasm, the subjects appear mostly to be sports and/or wrestling figures, but actors and other media personalities are common. This cataloger was able to identify Method Man, Snoop Dogg, Nick Cannon, Steve Harvey, Robert Duvall, Kiefer Sutherland, Ryan Seacrest, Kevin Hart, Jason Alexander, Snooki, Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba, Jim Carrey, Matthew Broderick (x2), Jason Bateman, Artie Lange, Kevin Bacon, Cedric the Entertainer, Jessica Simpson, Seth Rogen, Lorne Michaels, Ozzy Osbourne, Keith Olbermann, Cal Ripken Jr., Paula Abdul, Amy Schumer, Vince McMahon, and Mr. T. It has been said the selfie is of late replacing the autograph as the favored celebrity token; this collection certainly supports that observation.
[New York]: [ca. mid-2010s]. Collection of 208 photo prints, all 4" by 6". Generally fine. Many include felt-tip notations to verso, and a few have been altered with marker to obscure faces in background.
