a really good reminder


While reading some industry related articles yesterday I stumbled across this article one WIRED. It was a really good reminder as instagram is such a must have these days for everyone and especially as I am in the midst of promoting my #madrefotoproject. This quote specifically resonated & I hope you use it as inspiration and permission to not only post the real deal but also tell the story about it.

The creator of Socality Barbie understands why such feeds are popular. Everyone likes breathtaking photos of mountains and beaches, and everyone longs for a day when they can just get away from it all. But in the end, this sort of endless visual snacking feels hollow. “I get it, it’s pretty to look at,” she says. “But it’s so dishonest. Nobody actually lives like this. And it’s so overdone that it’s becoming boring.”
