When the subject of Instagram comes up these days, it’s often met with distain and/or warnings of its myriad dangerous intentions and consequences. Nevertheless, it’s also a place where one can find one’s virtual community — one’s tribe if you like. I have four Instagram accounts: one for my interiors and architectural photography (@marybsutterphotography), one for my pets (@bowie_and_billie) and now two new ones: one for my street art photography (@artstreetlondon) and one for my house, which, before Covid, was also an Airbnb boutique space (@themodernvic).
Why have four separate communities? Well, despite the fact that all these things plus my children and granddaughter are all things or people I love, they don’t all sit well side by side in a gallery. So long live my four tribes!
