The exhibition includes select images from several Yale Photography MFA alumni’s Instagram streams. As Instagram continues to enter the art world and the artist’s hand, the emphasis between this specific group of photographers and this social media filter become unlikely cohorts, creating a series of pairings that straddle the fences between accessibility and prestige, personal and professional, public and intimate, analog and digital. And so, we are excited to join the sweeping trend of “Instagram shows,” this time, giving stage to this specific demographic of picture makers.The pictures here are printed through a Digital C-Type process, furthering them away from their native digital screens but retaining how they were originally seen when posted. The photographers’ images in the show not only hint at their individual worlds, but the dissimilar and familiar relationship to their own bodies of work outside of Instagram.
