InstaFame Documentary

STATUS - Ongoing

Instafame is a documentary project covering current issues surrounding tourism, social media and Australia's beautiful landscape. In collaboration with RMIT, this environmental documentary will cover topics surrounding our desire to collect 'trophy images' at some the Australia's most picturesque locations.

'The sharing of stunning photos on social media is becoming a destructive force as Instagram trophy hunters beat a path to Australia's natural wonders.' Gregor Salmon.

Streams of Instagrammers chasing popular images and to get them beat there own path to that (often fragile) location.

"Are we slowly but surely causing some of the most beautiful, previously out-of-reach, unknown and hard-to-find locations to die a slow [or in some cases, a very, very quick] death?" Jason Futrill; ABC News Article.
