Is photography dead?

Photography experienced something of a renaissance when smartphones came along. Far from being dead, apps such as Instagram rejuvenated the art form.

Some interesting facts include:

  • Facebook has 10,000 times more photos than the world’s largest library, the USA’s Library of Congress
  • photos make up 42% of posts on Tumblr
  • 741 million mobile phones worldwide have “some type of photo capability”

The infographic below by Overgram, an app that adds text to Instagram photos, details the evolution of photography from its birth in 1826 to modern-day usage on social networks… fascinating!
