This Selfie Stick Phone Call Photo Will Be The Lasting Image Of 2015, Our Time

“Hello? History?”

Roberto Baldwin

Every so often, a photograph comes along that defines an era.

Maybe it's Alfred Eisenstaedt's V-J Day snap of sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square.

Maybe it's a man standing in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square.

Though these images will live forever and their significance will only grow, when a new one appears, its significance is immediately, terrifyingly obvious.

Today, the good early adopters over at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas have given us one such image. Though 2015 is less than a week old, this single photograph of a middle-aged, salt-and-pepper-haired suit taking a phone call without removing his selfie stick now stakes its claim to immortality, searing itself onto our cultural memory, instant history.
