If you didn’t take a selfie, did it really happen? Just ask this guy.
Alex Chacon, worldwide traveler, videographer and professional selfie artist, has released the second installment of his video “3 Year Epic Selfie - Around the World in 360 Degrees.” The film features Chacon holding a GoPro camera out in front of him as he spins in circles in various places around the globe. Chacon then splices these widespread shots together to create the “Epic Selfie.”
The video takes place in 41 countries over 650 days, according to his blog, The Modern Motorcycle Diaries. Some of the countries he visited and selfie-d in over the past year include Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and Nepal. While in the U.S., Chacon made trips to New York and San Francisco. Chacon uses the project and the people he meets during his travels to support different charities.
"It's really great now to finally have this platform and have millions of (viewers) to make a difference with," Chacon told the Daily News. "People can all contribute or they can take the time and travel to help others."
Hopefully Chacon will continue these epic travels. But first, let him take a selfie.
