You are invited to witness something new.
A Day In The Life. An Instagram Photo Exhibit.
Photo exhibits are a dime a dozen. But an Instagram photo exhibit? Only two have been mounted — one in the US and the second in Canada — as far as I know. The third will be held in the Philippines and the exhibitors are B.A. Photography students of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
What’s the big deal about an Instagram photo exhibit? For photographers, photo enthusiasts, advertising / marketing think tanks and media (mainstream and social) practitioners, it is a sneak peek into the future — how creative photography directly relates to digital advertising and social media campaigns, and how the upcoming crop of professional photographers see social networks and the world wide web as a fertile ground for propagating messages through catchy images.
From a creative angle, it is innovative. From a business perspective, it is shrewd.
A Day In The Life will open at Big Bad Wolf, The Fort, on April 4 at 8.00 p.m. and will run for a week.
Oh, by the way, my daughter, Sam, is one of the exhibitors.
Hope to see you at Big Bad Wolf.
