TED: Duncan Davidson – Why do we Hate Seeing Photos of Ourselves?


Here is a question you might have never given much though to – why almost always when we are shown a picture of ourselves we don’t like it? photographer Duncan Davidson talked to a number of scientists and brain researchers and came up with (a basic sort of) a theory which he tries to give in this brief TED lecture.

Do you agree with Davidson? do you have a different theory as to why we usually hate our own images?
