These pictures are so great that we're going to (almost) bypass the fact they are not strictly speaking selfies.

Danish art director Olivia Muus, who works at an advertising agency, is the curator of the Museum of Selfies.

She told she was inspired to start the series after taking a photo of her friend Sophie Hotchkiss's hand in front of a painting at the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen.

"I took a picture for fun and liked how this simple thing could change their character and give their facial expression a whole new meaning," she said.

"I think it's interesting how we get a whole new perception of a person, as soon as there is a smartphone in front of their face."

Olivia wants people to submit their own pictures via [email protected] or on Instagram using #museumofselfies.
