Instagram Photos - Hot Topic of the Moment

I encourage my students especially to read up on many of the interesting conversations currently taking place in on-line photography blogging circles (which is really not as inclusive as it sounds - at least I hope not).  We tend to discuss the nature of nostalgia and the fetishization of antiquated photographic processes in class quite a bit, and I think younger photographers and students of photography have a lot to contribute to this conversation.  One of the great things about blogging is the ability to respond to one another and keep the dialogue going (either through comments if they are allowed or in an authored piece on your own blog that links back to the content you are referencing).

A great example of a recent post on the matter is from Tom Griggs, editor and founder of fototazo.  Click HERE to read his essay.  Be sure to make your way to the bottom where he offers a reading list related to the topic.
