Using only the Instagram app on my iPhone to document my surroundings, I capture the local streets in all its true beauty and grit. It is all too easy to snap an iconic picture in London with all the world-famous landmarks we have here. However, the streets of London are a kaleidoscope of art and literature – it’s all there waiting to be discovered, but those candid moments are gone just as quickly as they were here!
Candid Iphone Street Photography
Instagram is very much seen as ‘snackable media’ where you view content and move on, but I think it goes much deeper than that. Instragram is all about capturing the essence of life as it happens as a sort of visual storytelling. As the internet shifts to becoming an ever more visual first environment, the simplicity, beauty and community behind Instagram makes it such a great resource for a creative photographer. Where else can you quickly capture slices of life from such a diverse mix of cultures from around the world than on the streets of London with an iPhone?
