This master's thesis provides a phenomenological insight into what the use of the selfie means for "the I" and "the Other", the relationship between these two and how we should assess this. The works of Sartre and Lacan are used as a fulcrum to investigate. In particular, their reflections on the gaze and the role it plays in the process of constituting human subjectivity. This analysis shows that selfies for "the I" are misleading, destructive and tragic. "The I" which makes selfies to catch the gaze of the Other has an infinite and unfulfilled desire. This is the tragedy of "the I".
