#snapshot

Today I went to see the #snapshot exhibition at the Finnish museum of photography.

The Internet has fundamentally changed photography. Never in history have people created so many photographs to such vast and immediate audiences as today. Never before has the individual snapshot taken by ordinary men and women had such global political impacts. Photographs have become integral in all forms of our communication. Today, sharing pictures is as important as creating them.

As a featured image on the top, you can see part of the mountain of all public Flickr images uploaded on a single day.

The exhibition is still open on Sunday if you want to ponder the motivation and impact of photo sharing.
