From Cape Town to Copenhagen, Madrid to Miami, the ambitious Instagramers Gallery projects wants to change the ways we see, record, and share our world. The site aims to become the largest digital photography collection ever and is based on the simple premise: “Know the world. Share the world.” This is not a social network; rather a thriving art community where audiences tag photos they like most to recognize photographers and their visions of the world. Two physical galleries (one in Miami, which will be followed by another one in Madrid in 2014) will offer seminars, talks, events, and exhibitions around Instagram photography.
