It has dozens of competitors, but Instagram stands out for its fast ascension and almost cultlike following.
I find below scary and almost unfathomable:
JENNA WORTHAM says in her piece in the The New York’s Times blog - BITS, “It has 30 million users who upload more than five million photos a day, even though it was available for only Apple devices until last week, when the company released an Android app”.
Instagram has only been in existence for two years and Facebook have just bought it for 1 Billion.
The democratisation of photography. More people are making more pictures now then any other point in the history of photography. But the question beckons, is it a sea of mediocrity?

I agree with much of what Greene says in this interview with PHOTO RAW but I think his vitriol about some forms of digital technology is rather extreme. Does using film, digital or even apps (clearly my personal bias is B+W film) in post production really matter? With post production and using apps, the norm is that if the image (if used within a journalism context) is manipulated to a point of altering the content/composition then this needs to be stated clearly in the credit e.g. Photo Illustration by….
Cameras are just tools, it is about a photographers vision – is it not? Whether a photographer uses a disposable camera (yes, you can still buy them) or a state of the art high-end digital camera is not the issue.
There is enough room in the world for shooting on an iPhone or on a 10×8 Polaroid camera or any other camera you can dream up. Such is the richness and diversity of photography. Genre fascists reduce the world we work in – creatively.
The ugly argument going on in most of this FB dialogue (read it if you are game) is negative and unconstructive.
Are the participants (apart from the few who have made reasonable comments ) in this FB dialogue drowning in their own hubris?
Do they have a one dimensional view of photography and themselves?
Whatever happened to the notion that photography is about the subject, social issues and story telling?
