This is a good post which taks about the Nostalgia of the Images that the filters in Instagram represent. They are like a manufactured Nostalgia. From this Article i have made the opinion that its the Nostalgia and the act of producing these images that remind us of times gone by or the analog Image, the polaroid shot, its this that gets us making more images in the new medium. There is also a great point raised about the fact that a lot of people who are using these Apps and these filters wern’t even around to remember the aesthetics they are meant to be nostalgic about. It’s really Paradoxial, like a phenomenon. The Nostalgia Phenomenon.
