Congratulations to PSC teacher Katrin Koenning for being featured in Time for her unique and inspiring work on Instagram!

"I think Instagram is a great space to reach a large audience; it's a space that is non-elitist and inclusive. For me, it is also a space that allows me to experiment with ideas." - Katrin  Koenning
To celebrate Instagram's fifth birthday,  Time (the world’s largest weekly news publication) asked five influential photographers to share the Instagram accounts they can’t live without. Top photographer  Alec Soth named Katrin’s Instagram feed as one of his top five, applauding her for her ‘consistent aesthetic bliss’. Her account is full of rich, stylised and luminescent imagery that has won the attention and appreciation of countless Instagram users.
