Art portraits turned into smartphone selfies, the photo galleryNovember 3, 2022

Danish designer Olivia Muus had the clever idea of making portraits look like they were being taken as selfies. By holding her camera up in front of portraits at the National Gallery of Denmark she’s created her own art form in the Museum of Selfies.
