The Sunday Still: The Selfie

Photojournalist Patrick Farrell has joined the blog with his weekly feature, The Sunday Still. Farrell selects one image each week that showcases the best photojournalism by photojournalists from around the world. The feature runs weekly in The Sunday Long Read. The goal of the newsletter, edited by Don Van Natta Jr. and Jacob Feldman, is to put the week’s best journalism in your hands every Sunday morning.

The Selfie 

Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, who may be one of the few 76-year-olds on Snapchat, went social with the crowd after the debate July 31 in Detroit’s Fox Theatre. Shooting for CNN, photojournalist Gabriella Demczuk waited until after the speeches to photograph the candid moment, angling the image just right to get Biden’s face in the shot. Shooting photos of people taking photos typically isn’t news, but selfies have become too much a part of the political process to ignore.

Patrick Farrell, the curator of The Sunday Still, is the 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Breaking News Photography for The Miami Herald, where he worked from 1987 to 2019. He is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Journalism and Media Management at the University of Miami School of Communication.
