From 2013 to 2015, Selfless Portraits invited strangers across the globe to draw each other's Facebook profile pictures. These small creative gestures bridged the gap between technology and humanity and brought people together in an unexpected way. Changes in Facebook's platform forced us to stop accepting submissions, but the gallery of over 52,000 portraits from 149 countries remains open for you to enjoy. Thanks for coming along on the journey with us.
HOW IT WORKED
Upload your profile picture to be hand drawn by a Facebook user somewhere in the world. To receivethe finished portrait, you must complete and upload a drawing of a randomly-assigned person’s profile picture.
Draw as many people as you like. Your work will be added to the Gallery and your My Portraits page.
