Selfies that don’t suck

Photographer Jairo Alvarez's self-portraits are illusive masterpieces.


We love a good illusion, especially when it comes to life in photography or video (here’s looking at you Zach King). Here’s a mesmerizing photographer, Jairo Alvarez, who pulls us in with illusive images that must have taken him hours, if not days, to perfect. Imagine the amount of planning and the time spent in post. A lot of them are self-portraits too. So next time you think about holding your arm with your phone cocked in a picture-taking pose, maybe think of this guy and use your creative juices to step the selfie up a notch.
