The thousands of stories that result in a single selfie escape us. We are not exposed to the true feelings of the subject in a selfie, who also is the casting agent, makeup artist, set designer and photographer.

Selfie Poems try to capture the joy, pain, dreams, fears and sense of wonder that every selfie has - beyond the visible picture.

Most images were found on Instagram.
