The Sartorialist on Instagram


I’m really honored tonight to present the Webby Breakout of the Year award to Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger of Instagram.


Instagram has become a great tool for people to feel more confident in sharing their images, which is something that I think can only be good.


You’ve seen filtered images on my Twitter account, so you may already know I’ve been using Instagram consistently over the last six months. What you may not know is that recently I made my Instagram account public. You can follow me at @TheSartorialist

    Oh yes! I’m hoping to get a more intimate glimpse into the life of the sartorialist…

    Congratulations to them, and good luck to you tonight at the awards.
    They really have changed, once again, the way people share information and experiences.

    I’m so in love with this app… Everywhere I go I find inspiration for it. And now I’ve even started posting the pictures as a regular section of my blog…

    Just curious what you find so appealing regarding this photograph? It seems to be a straightforward documentation of someone else’s art work, which doesn’t really strike me as a quality photograph. It’s pleasing to look at, but what does it say? This is part of the dilemma regarding Instagram, is that suddenly, anyone with a cell phone camera is an artist. The end result dilutes the overall creative scene….it ends up being like white noise. This isn’t a critique of these particular artists. Good for them. They’re out in the world and trying to see it from a creative perspective, but much of what I see on Instagram, mostly ends up having a snapshot aesthetic when viewed as a whole. Curious what you think about this. I’m not trying to be callous about the photograph, but I’m trying to see it in the context of the bigger question……what is art, or what makes it a good photograph?

    It seemed strange that you were not in Instagram, Scott. I’ve added to my contacts Instagram, so there also hope to give you my “like” in shape of hearts.

    I kept hoping we’d see you on there sometime. Any reason you didn’t just take over the @sartorialist tag? It’s handy when the IG tag is consistent with other usernames (like Twitter).

    I know the IG guys are cool about giving back user names to people when they’ve been squatted.

    Oh man! Instagram is pretty much the only way I take good yet bad photos lol — I really miss polaroids too, so many good memories were instantly handheld and marked with a sharpie.

    Would love if your readers will take a peek at my blog
    (I know that looks spammy, but I promise you’ll find something you like if you come check us out.)

    I am only hearing about this instagram all the time :). I feel like I’m very out of fashion… haha, but still I haven’t felt the need to use it. Can anyone convince me in how much I’m missing?

    Amazing photo. Scott really sees the city like no one else sees it. Every city. I guess what I mean is he really sees the beauty in the everyday things of the world. The people, the clothing they wear, the graffiti on the walls, the shop windows… everything. More of Scotts work can only be a good thing.
