This Artist Is Taking Selfies with Renowned Cultural Icons Who Are Dead and Gone

The selfie generation no longer cares about taking autographs of their idols. The perfect Instagram selfie is worth so much more. Animator, filmmaker, and theatre personality, Gitanjali Rao, has taken this cultural obsession to a whole new artistic level with her project, Wish Fulfillment Selfies. Prior to this, she had never taken a selfie, simply because she got a smartphone very recently. Now, she uses the magic of Photoshop to take selfies with iconic artistes, historical figures, as well as fictional characters.
