@insta_repeat is a new Instagram account that reveals the “visual sameness” of photos being posted to Instagram. Each collage shows photos by unrelated photographers that look remarkably similar.
Photoshelter reports that the account is the brainchild of a 27-year-old artist and filmmaker from Anchorage, Alaska, who’s choosing to remain anonymous.
“There is a lot of mimicry everywhere in media, not just on Instagram,” the woman behind @insta_repeat tells Photoshelter. “A purpose of Insta_Repeat is to critique originality in media creation through the lens (pun intended) of this one ‘genre’ of Instagram photography accounts.”
P.S. Photographer Oliver KMIA shared a similar commentary of Instagram travel photos through his viral video “Instravel”.
