Picture Yourself

Star power

Although not technically a selfie, this photo fits the category in composition and attitude. A previously unpublished image from the Las Vegas News Bureau archives, this press club party photo from around 1970 shows Eartha Kitt controlling her image the way a current celebrity would do it with her phone. On stage and in front of the lens, Ms. Kitt was a force of nature who knew how to create the moment that would attract the eye of a photographer and the snap of a shutter. The photographer sees that moment and makes the photo. It’s as automatic as if she had tripped the shutter herself. A selfie. – Mark Damon
