Northern Territory Library launches iNsTagrammers exhibition
Northern Territory Library (NTL) will officially open its latest exhibition, iNsTagrammers, on 29 March, celebrating the very best in contemporary Territory photography shared to social media by Territorians themselves.
The new exhibition collates more than 70 images from photographers from across the Territory, and features stunning imagery of the landscapes, wildlife, lifestyle and tourism experiences as well as powerful photojournalism.
Director of NTL Patrick Gregory said Territory Instagram users post some of the most popular content in Australia, profiling distinctive Territory people, places and stories, and iNsTagrammers helps celebrate their work.
“The exhibition captures our wonderful diversity and different points of view while promoting our beautiful backyard and special way of life – culminating in a unique exhibition of the things that unite us, and set us apart.
“The featured photographers in the exhibition were selected for their ability to capture incredible Territory moments that represent the diverse beauty of our life and landscape,” said Mr Gregory.
Photography continues to be one of the most important ways the NTL preserves the Territory’s social and cultural life and social media is quickly becoming the preferred way that people are sharing Territory images and stories to a global audience.
NTL currently has more than 100,000 historic images of the Northern Territory in its collections and heavily encourages the work of creative through providing access to collections, facilitating research and offering spaces to work.
iNsTagrammers: the best in NT photography from Instagram runs from 29 March to 2 July 2017 at the Northern Territory Library in Parliament House.
