Canada Place taps Instagram for CanadaGram photo exhibit in Vancouver
There’s a photography exhibition going on at Vancouver’s Canada Place, and all the images were curated using Instagram. CanadaGram features more than 70 square photos that were shared using the popular mobile app.
Until October 31, the pictures—showing “Canada through the lens of Canadians on Instagram”—can be viewed on the big outdoor screen called Canada’s Storyboard, as part of the Digital Canvas series of art exhibitions. The photos have also been posted on the Canada Place Facebook page.
The images range from coast to coast to coast, and several depict Vancouver. Since Canada Place is a tourist attraction—owned by Canada Place Corporation, a subsidiary of Port Metro Vancouver—it’s no surprise that the featured snaps largely look like travel and vacation photos. There’s landscapes, outdoor fun, sports fandom, and food. No scenes of homelessness here and indeed not much of a hint as to Canada’s cultural diversity.
If you would like to see your square photos in a future edition of CanadaGram, tag your favourite Canadian snaps with #canadagram and mention @canadaplace.
