AP’s David Guttenfelder Named ‘Instagram Photographer Of The Year’ By ‘Time’

DavidGuttenfelderInstagram650Veteran photojournalist David Guttenfelder was named “Instagram Photographer of the Year” by none other than Time, showing just how mainstream the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network has become.

Guttenfelder, chief Asia photographer for the AP, is a seven-time World Press Photo award-winner, Time reported, and he has worked in more than 75 countries.

Time wrote of Guttenfelder’s work in North Korea:

In his Instagram pictures, we see the spectral emptiness of Pyongyang’s Orwellian city blocks, the hushed quiet of passengers in buses, the coiled patterns of a carpet in an otherwise nondescript waiting room. The photos that end up on Guttenfelder’s Instagram feed are often ones he says wouldn’t have a home elsewhere — of the margins of a scene, of objects cast in still-life.
