If you ever wondered what a real-life instagram photo would look like

News and Events

The next time you find yourself sightseeing in London, you might see something you recognize from your phone’s home screen.

Brazilian artist Bruno Ribeiro has launched a project called Real Life Instagram, AdWeek reports. Ribeiro created physical filters near London’s most popular landmarks. The filters are square lighting gels in cardboard frames, made to look like Instagram posts.


Ribeiro attached them to lampposts, walls, and whatever else he could find, hoping people will take Instagram photos through them.

The cardboard frames use the hashtag #reallifeinstagram to encourage others to do the same when they post their photos on the social media platform. He also framed the filters using his own username, @nitchows.

Not bad self-promotion.

As of the publish time of this article, there are over 500 photos with the hashtag.
