Self-portraits taken at arm-length with a hand-held camera are immensely popular among the social media generation and almost ubiquitous on the internet.

Cape Town-based advertising agency Lowe Cape Town has created a clever, tongue-in-cheek campaign for The Cape Times newspaper—featuring iconic photographs re-imagined as these “cam-whoring” self-portraits.
