This Is Why This Photographer Has 1 Million Followers On Instagram

Social media is polluted with people who got famous posting content such as “this is totally me when I…(some stolen YouTube video)” but that’s alright. Some of these videos and content, in general, is funny. You come up with a funny line, you add a video at the end, it goes viral, people follow you and that’s it. You’re suddenly popular on Instagram or Facebook. But once in a while, we come across accounts such as jasonmpeterson. Photographer Jason M. Peterson has been taking black and white pictures in the last 25 years. Which means that he is pretty close to excellence by now.

“I am trying to capture human emotion, make the viewer feel something. Black and white helps focus on that emotion—color is one less thing to be in the way of seeing the feeling.”
