For the past year and a half, using only his camera phone and working under the nom de photo "thunder_pino" (a tribute to his father and mother, who are from Thunder Bay and the Phillippines respectively), Derek Shapton has quietly documented various aspects of his immediate environment in an ongoing one-photo-a-day Instagram project. By turns whimsical, striking, witty, and obscure, the accumulated images have evolved into an unusual, diaristic body of work, equal parts photographic sketchbook and visual journal. Inspired by the Instagram feed grid-view, a seasonally-themed selection of 72 of Shapton's images have been arranged across eight panels, and will be on display at Archive.
