Have People Always Hated Pictures of Themselves?

Ransom Riggs wrote a great piece over at Mental Floss about his collection of photos that are sometimes painful to look at and read, but yet somehow very reassuring. What does his photo collection feature? Comments by people who hate their own photos of course…

sad photo comments

I kind of chuckled when I first read it, but the more your read and the more you look at the pics, the more you see how people have not changed much over the years. Which kinds of made me sad/happy. Will we ever feel comfortable with our own images? Are the people who love pics of themselves the weird one? This got me thinking more then it should have…damn you Ransom Riggs!
