People have been capturing portraits since the earliest days of man, but the evolution of the self-portrait has come along way since prehistoric cave paintings based on reflections in water. This cluster examines some of the most unique self-portraits we’ve featured on Trend Hunter, ranging from self-kiss portraits to pop-up business cards.

Implications - Self portraiture is the ultimate when it comes to the concept of individualization. Customers are constantly exploring their inner selves and businesses that aid them in this quest or allow them to identify with their brand as a part of their desired culture will do well in the marketplace. The pursuit of the individual will lead to many more personalized products in the future.
