Tenney Mason-- “Instagram as a Source of Quality Photography

Tenney Mason is a retired, award winning staff photographer and director of photography for Patuxent Publishing Co. — at one time a chain of 16 suburban newspapers serving the Baltimore/Washington corridor.

After his retirement, Tenney became very active on Instagram, and over the past five years has averaged over 300 posts per year on his @tenneymason IG account.   He uses the program as an archive and/or portfolio for his recent and past images; and as a source for discovering and following the amazing multitude of superb image makers who frequent the platform.

Tenney started making 8x8 prints of his photos several years ago, and recently had a one man show at the Glenelg Country School Gallery near Ellicott City. The title of the show was INSTAVISION. The goal was to create an Instagram experience on a gallery wall.

Tonight Tenney will share some of his thoughts and opinions on Instagram’s role as an outlet for outstanding imagery, and will talk about the logistics and rewards of producing an exhibit with a different  twist.
