Now there’s a museum dedicated to selfies where you yourself are the artwork. Seattle model and photographer Jessy Parr, better known as @modachrome, visited the museum and joined Bill Radke to discuss the experience.

But also unusual is the fact that he has Treacher Collins Syndrome, which is the focus of each of their memoirs. The two sat down with Bill Radke to discuss Magda’s book, Normal.
