National Teacher Day on Instagram
Happy National Teacher Day!
Teachers are tasked with the difficult challenge of engaging and inspiring future generations. We’re excited to see so many teachers among those pushing the Instagram envelope and finding creative and innovative ways of bringing Instagram into the classroom.
Educators are at the forefront of highlighting the rich and unique aspects of the global Instagram community, from using Instagram photos to inspire creative writing, to employing Photo Maps for geography lessons, to encouraging students to undertake ethnographic studies of their neighborhood.
Take a moment today to reflect on an educator that has had a meaningful impact on your life and share your story with the #greatteaching hashtag.
Today we’re spotlighting the work of photographer Daniella Zalcman, whose stunning New York + London series of superimposed photos takes Instagram images to a new level. Navigating between travel and art photography, Zalcman documented her major transnational relocation to London from New York with this set of overlapping photographs of both cities. Her meticulous compositions produce synergy and dissonance in the same frame, heightening their visual contrast and strong atmospheric presence. Click through to see more!
Celebrating I.M. Pei’s 96th Birthday
Today, famed architect I.M. Pei turns 96. Born in Guangzhou, China, Pei came to the United States in 1935 to pursue higher education. He graduated from MIT with his Bachelors in Architecture in 1940 and from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design in 1946.
Pei’s work is distinctly modernist with cubist tones and often features distinctive sweeping reflective glass facades. He is perhaps best known for the glass and steel pyramid at the Museé du Louvre in Paris, France—a controversial project completed in 1989 that has since become one of the most iconic modern buildings in France.
