Brooklyn's 'What I See' goes viral for all the wrong reasons
Brooklyn Beckham, son of former England footballer David Beckham and fashion designer Victoria Beckham, announced his debut book by posting a double selfie to his Instagram account. The cover of the book features Brooklyn photographing himself in a mirror: an analogue selfie. In the Instagram pic, 18-year-old Brooklyn is holding a copy of the book with a satisfied expression on his face.
The book has barely hit stores and it's already gone viral. Sadly for Brooklyn, however, people mainly seem to be commenting on the poor quality of the photos and the captions.
One image shows an elephant that's barely visible due to being completely in shadow. Brooklyn's caption reads: 'Elephants in Kenya. So hard to photograph but incredible to see.' Another is a blurry snap of a dinner party. Alongside it, Brooklyn wrote: 'Dinner. I like this picture – it's out of focus but you can tell there's a lot going on.'

The book was released this week in the UK. Publication has been accompanied by the news that Brooklyn will begin studying photography next year at the Parson School of Design in New York. Which begs the question: why didn't young Brooklyn wait until he'd finished his studies before showing us what he can do?
