Photograph by Victoria Sambunaris

Victoria Sambunaris‘s photography is obsessed with the American landscape. Over the past decade, Sambunaris and her large format camera have traversed the country by car on what she describes as “seemingly every road, parkway, thruway, highway, freeway and turnpike between the coasts and beyond.” Her journey has produced spectacular imagery and a diverse body of work that contrasts geology and industry, and highlights her curiosity with man’s exploration and intrusion in nature. Her body of work, The Border focuses on the U.S.-Mexican border and is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Photo in Chicago. (with a public reception and lecture February 7th — 5-7pm)

See the work on LightBox here. For more information on the exhibition, visit the museum’s website here.

Instagram is revolutionizing the way that we communicate through images. It’s a vessel for a picture to reach a potentially massive audience in an instant. Once the picture is uploaded and reaches the followers of the specific feed; from there, it can reach thousands and perhaps millions of others through other social media.

One of the most unique aspects about Instagram is that it’s direct from the field— from photographer to viewer. By handing over TIME’s Instagram feed to a photographer covering a breaking news story—whether it’s Ed Kashi on Hurricane Sandy or Brooks Kraft on Obama’s election trail—we are giving the photographer the opportunity to file direct from the field to our viewers. No editor involved. That’s revolutionary.
