Instaburb: 50 Images of Australia Suburbia
In October 2011, Misho Baranovic and Oliver Lang launched one of the first Instagram open calls for photography based on a dedicated theme - Australian Suburbia. Over 2,200 photographs were submitted to the #instaburb tag from amateur and professional photographers throughout the country.
Fifty photographs from thirty five photographers were selected for the Instaburb Blurb book and corresponding one-night exhibition launched on April 13, 2012 at the Dumbo Feather headquaters.
The opening was a great success, with over 150 attendees including photography and digitial technology professionals, academics and exhibited photographers who had flown in from around the country.
You can purchase the book online at Blurb. Here is a preview of the Instaburb softcover edition.
