852 Instagram photos from 852 different users.

Jullien crowdsourced 852 Instagram photos from 852 different users and assembled them into one clever stop-motion video. "An Instagram short film” journeys around the world in 1 minute and for 46 seconds, finding common threads in monuments and architecture, fireworks and sunsets, and many, many modes of transportation.
