Abstract:This dissertation is a case study on three females’ use of the InstagramTM photographic application. The study examines how three self-identified feminists use Instagram to reflect on their own history and daily life, for self-empowerment and engagement with a supportive community. The motivation for this study emerges from my own experiences documenting photographs of my own daily life and sharing my images on Instagram and other social networking platforms. In addition to conducting a self study of my own engagement in Instagram, I examine how two other women create and share images on Instagram and consider what are the implications of Instagram for art education.
