This shot of five photographers (remember when that was a profession that only a few could enter?) on a New York City rooftop in 1920 might be the earliest instance we have of what would be considered a modern selfie. Self-referential meta-photography was born with the selfie itself, apparently, as there's also a shot of the photo being made:

Selfie taker Christain was participating in the annual Great Bull Run at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas, on Jan. 25 when he took this selfie. Looks like this guy won the Selfie Olympics, hands down.

Ferdinand Puentes, along with seven other passengers and the pilot, escaped a crashed Cessna just shortly after it plunged into the ocean. Not long after his escape from the sinking aircraft, Puentes found the opportunity to capture an epic selfie!
