Instagram and its impact on environmental storytelling

Photography has the power to define and capture critical moments in history, from the civil war to civil rights. Photos allow all to create their own personal narrative.

Instagram allows anyone to share that narrative. Within Instagram, environmental storytelling has taken a new form. The visuals allow anyone in the world to connect on a personal level to an image — a moment in time — and can evoke an emotional response from the viewer.

Today's environmental storytellers have embraced the power Instagram can have as a media platform — not just a social media platform — as it helps educate and inform.
