From December 18, 2014 - January 28, 2015 CCTV is hosting a juried exhibition of work created within the city of Cambridge using the social media platform Instagram. With 200 million users in only 2.5 years (300 million as of December 2014), and 60 million posts shared every day, Instagram has become a part of the cultural vocabulary, influencing how we understand and interact with the world. Instagram is an innovative platform that permits new ways of seeing things and understanding the “everyday” and the “commonplace” - in much the same way as street photography did at the end of the 19th century and continues to do so today. Geotagging Cambridge: Street Photography in the Digital Age is an exhibition inspired by the way in which Instagram motivates the practitioner to see things differently, to notice the familiar, and to capture the ordinary in a remarkable way.

FEATURED ARTISTS: Jordy Brazo, Charles Cherney, Marissa Fisher, Rebecca Fritz, Jeffrey Hansell, Erin M. Harris, Alena Heath, Beverly Mire, Frank Morris, Lisë Stern, Anthony Tulliani, Kristen Williamson
