Martin Parr: Death by Selfie (Signed)

In 2015, 27 people died taking selfies. In both 2016 and 2017, 68 were killed by selfies. Many of the deaths occur when other people step in to try and rescue the selfie taker washed away by freak waves. People also die by going too near a raging fire, or the often occurring stepping backwards off a cliff edge. However to India’s great credit this figure dropped substantially in 2018, down to a mere 2 deaths. The authorities in India are aware of this hazard, and for example in Ooty,  athe popular boating lake, all selfies are banned whilst boating, this despite the mandatory instruction to wear a life belt.  But on the beach of Goa, it is impossible to look round without seeing a selfie being taken. - Martin Parr
