Histagrams is a Tumblr blog that depicts historical events as Instagram posts.
Site creators Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen imagine how historically significant moments might have been shared if the people behind them had had Instagram at their disposal.
Gusto NYC and Alaoen’s creations run the gamut between comical, crude and awkward by taking the experiment far beyond just the square crop and filters. Their photos come complete with comments and likes that add ironic context to the photograph.
Gusto NYC told Mashable that the idea came to him while wondering what Instagram might have looked like had it existed five years ago. Then I thought 10, 20 years ago, but why stop there? The purpose of the site is putting a lighthearted/comedic spin on history, while also being able to comment on past/current pop-cultural behaviors
