Jonathan Jones of the Guardian eloquently sums up my feelings about Ben Innes and the hijack "selfie"

And for all the pedants out there, and completely irrelevant to the mood of the above link, which I share in nothing but amused admiration, in my view it is absolutely a "selfie" (as dubious a term as that might be) regardless of the fact that an air hostess took the actual shot.

I personally think the authorship of a picture rests with the person that conceived the concept of the shot, that had the vision behind the scene. The creator of the image. Not necessarily the same body that released the shutter on the camera.
