Minds In the Cloud

@ VOL 3 ON JUL 21, 2016

"Some digital media truly fosters social harmony. No matter what tragedies occur, Instagram’s open exchange of art and beauty, streaming 24/7, improves human condition, as well as my own."

In "Minds In the Cloud" from PechaKucha Night Three Oaks Vol. 3, Kate Ryan shares the community of photographers she's met through Instagram. With permission and participation of these well recognised artists, Kate opens up the stunning visual variety of images emerging from around the world.
