Photographer’s inspiring selfies project: No one can deny the popularity of a selfie. But long before it became a phenomenon, Elaine Adolfo was taking them for nearly a decade, showcasing her photos in a Flickr series called The 10 Year Project.

“Most people take photos of themselves on trips or some place special,” Elaine tells The Weekly Flickr in this video. “But I felt that it was important to photograph myself in front of things that I’m doing every day. I wanted to document those simple moments because that’s what makes up your life.”
