Mike Mellia’s GIF Series Takes Selfies To A Whole Other Level

New York-based photographer Mike Mellia takes the meaning of selfie to a whole new level with his latest project, A Selfie a Day Keeps the Doctor Away.

Usually dabbling in the world of fashion, Mellia’s latest works show his surrealist side with a set of shots that have been transformed into a quirky rotation of GIF-like images.

“I became obsessed with the idea that something so normal can become abnormal. In this way, the video loops were an extension of my storytelling style, subtle but with an underlying tension,” says Mellia. Publicly sharing his work, Mellia’s Instagram feed became his canvas with unusual shots from throwing cigarettes to smelling wine.
