Famous Photos Seen Through Instagram Filters

What would famous photographs look like if the photographers who created them had been using Instagram? That’s a question that’s answered by Mastergram, a site that takes the work of renowned photographers and passes them through Instagram filters.

    That is horrible and whom ever responsible should be whipped in the town square!
    (That’s still an appropriate form of punishment, right guys? …guys?)

    Surprised they have permission to do this.

    Of course they have permission to do this.  It is a derivative work and all images are assumed to be in public domain now.

    All it does is prove how awfully generic Instagram and its kind are. I understand why people use filters (I am and have been guilty of it as well), but now that just about everyone uses the same filters it’s really starting to make everything look exactly the same.

    I dunno. 150 years of striving to produce perfect images and we end up looking at stuff like this. About par for the course in most things in the world though I suppose. A desire for mediocrity.
