“Here you can stand out from the crowd, perhaps by finding a crazy new perspective like an aerial photo, or by playing with the quirky props,” said Lilla Gangel co-founder of the selfie museum.
“There are more and more places on the internet where you can share photos, we´re living in this type of world now, whether we like it or not,” she added as she elaborated on the purpose of the studio that she and her partner Balazs Koltai established after taking inspiration from a US based museum.
“People are who are looking for an edge for their social media profiles, we give it,” she stated.
Consisting of 11 sections in the museum with each based on a different theme, the museum is a heaven for people with a funky taste. From hanging bananas and strawberry props, to pink palm trees, to glitter and marble balls, to rainbows, Selfie Museum allows you to have fun in any way you want.
