Except, you know, he was actually using Kodachrome, not a farking filter that is supposed to look like Kodachrome.

So aside from one photo of a fixie, which was just a bike in 1971, this has nothing to do with Instagram.

Since the photographer is a person, shouldn't that be "...who inspired Instagram?"

Interesting has to be the least interesting of the tags. No one ever gets arrested by the irony police or has it thrown back in their face like 'asinine' or 'dumbass'.

I keep saying I am going to put aside my irrational disgust with Instagram, but goddamnitsomuch I keep seeing articles like this and become unreasonably pissed all over again.

Was a lot more complicated posting your photos on Twitter back in those days.

Quite so. In fact, this has nothing whatsoever to do with digitally reprocessed images.
(and I'm not that impressed with the originals, frankly).

No pictures of food or cats, so I don't see how he inspired instagram.
