The art of extreme selfie


The diversity of images that fall into the “extreme selfie” category is as wide as the imagination and creativity of those who pose in front of the lens. Here we show you a selection of “extreme selfies”.

While some put themselves in danger by making their own portrait together with wildlife (marine or terrestrial), the heights seduce other equally reckless photographers.

The demonstrators seeking to immortalize his face amid violent episodes also gain the sympathy of social networks.

Although some “extreme selfies” have turned out to be false , but the images shown below are real.
