How Historic Moments Would Have Been Shared on Instagram

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Many of history's most iconic memories endure in written form, as paintings or, perhaps at best, as cringe-worthy photographs. But what if those historic moments had been cheekily snapped and posted on Instagram?

Histagrams answer that very question, by providing a funny and flippant slant on some of history's most memorable moments as if they'd been uploaded to the photo-sharing site. Creators Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen explain:

“Swiping thru Instagram, [I] wondered what it would have been like if it was around 5 years ago, then I thought 10, 20 years ago, but why stop there? [We] like to exercise [our] creative muscles, so we try to do one-off projects such as this every few weeks. I like to think we have a good sense of humour so we try to incorporate that into many of the things we do.”

Currently the pair are posting new images at a rapid rate. You should go check 'em out at Histagrams. [Histagrams via Pleated Jeans via Peta Pixel]
