A picture says more than a thousand words. So what, then, do close on 60 million tell us? That’s the number posted every day around the world on photo-sharing site Instagram by its around 700 million users. Germany, too, is home to a vibrant “igers” scene, as the community likes to call itself.
Igers in the cities of Berlin und Nürnberg were therefore invited to enter the “#städteerleben. Instagram-Fotos analog“ photography competition by shooting pictures – using either smartphone or camera – of their hometown from the most diverse angles and perspectives.
Two locally convened juries reviewed submissions to the different hashtags, selecting the 16 most interesting and exciting shots of their respective city. At exhibitions staged in the museums for communication Berlin and Nuremberg, the 224 images have been brought together to create a colourful panorama of urban life.
