There's an art to taking the perfect selfie – from the angle, to the focus, the smile and, above all, cropping out that pesky outstretched arm. In a celebration of self-portraits in the social media age, Tommy Honton and Tair Mamedov launched their Museum of Selfies in Los Angeles Sunday. This interactive exhibition explores the history and cultural phenomenon of snapping a photo of yourself.Before the museum launch many advance visitors could be seen snapping photos of themselves around the space, including at an exhibit mimicking the rooftop of Los Angeles' tallest building.The exhibition begins with mirrors, the reflection being among the progenitors of the selfie, but Honton and Mamedov view "the selfie" as something more than a simple photo.There aren't statistics for Los Angeles, but Ally Bertik admits she is a frequent selfie-snapper.The Museum of Selfies will be open in Glendale for two months.
