LEAKED! Historical Icon Iphone Selfies!

By Anthony Thurston on March 17th 2013

Obviously the title is slightly misleading, and very impossible…. but check this out!

Internet marketer Frank Haenen took some time to imagine what life would have been like had smart phones existed much much earlier in time. Haenen manipulated several photographs of historically significant people and made it look like they had taken the shot via their smart phone – aka “selfies”.

The list of historical icons includes Marilyn Monroe, Ghandi, Karl Marx, Muhammad Ali, Christopher Columbus, Queen Elizabeth and Pablo Picaso. The quality of the photoshop work varies greatly from obvious to pretty good, but the point gets across nicely.

You can check out the images below. Leave a comment and let us know what historical icon you would like to have seen added to the list.

    Except, you know, these were actually the work of real artists, using knowledge and experience to create something rather than the work of vain ass in a bathroom mirror.
