On July 1 three colleagues and I launched Everyday Latin America on Instagram. We are a group of 23 photographers from throughout Latin America that hope to show each other and the world the reality of our region through mobile phone photography. The inspiration to start the group came from Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill, who started the first (of many!) Everyday accounts on Instagram when they launched Everyday Africa back in 2012.
In the past two months it’s been incredible to see the work of so many colleagues from around Latin America and interact more directly with them. From here we hope to grow, adding more contributors and finding ways to engage more with Latin America communities.
In September Everyday Latin America will also be represented at Photoville in Brooklyn, New York, alongside many of the other Everyday communities.
