Obama’s funeral selfie is a fitting end to my Tumblr – Selfies at Funerals
The Mandela memorial selfie elicited much righteous indignation. But, like the teens on my site, these leaders are merely using a new visual language to express mixed emotions

At Nelson Mandela’s memorial service yesterday, the US president, Barack Obama, said: “Let us search for his largeness of spirit somewhere inside of ourselves.” And, he could have added, inside our selfies. At that same event, Obama smooshed heads with the Danish and British prime ministers for what is arguably the most epic funeral selfie of all time. 

Dozens of people quickly tweeted me about it, which pleased me greatly. I was the guy who, with a viral Tumblr called Selfies at Funerals, made “funeral selfie” one of the most noxious phrases of 2013.
