The Truth Behind Instagram Photos

The Truth Behind Instagram Photos

Every day, thousands of people on Instagram snap pictures meant to invent a new identity for themselves. That is the message behind this wonderful photo series by Chompoo Baritone, a photographer in Bangkok, Thailand who shows just how fake Instagram photos can be.

Numerous artists, like the anonymous photographer behind Hipster Barbie, have criticized the way people use Instagram to make their lives seem more amazing than they are and to set unrealistic standards for their followers. Careful cropping and filtering can make mundane situations seem extraordinary. Tilda Lindam, a model with an excellent sense of humor, also emphasized the vanity inherent in creating photos like those that Baritone also spoofs.

Baritone studied photography at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Thailand, so we hope this isn’t the last brilliant social commentary project that she’s got up her sleeve!
