EyeEm, an online photographic community, have carried out an end of year analysis from within their community of 15 million photographers, spanning from 150 countries. The trends that evolved within 2015 bode well for the art of photography, with there being an increase in true photographic styles such as street photography and an identifiable decrease in social phenomenons such as the ‘selfie’.
With the year of 2015 coming to a close, EyeEm wanted to share learnings from the year with their community as well as anyone with an affinity for photography.
The infographic is split into sections where they first outline the growth/decline of the photographic subjects. EyeEm then split the world map to show you which types of photography are most prominent around the globe. EyeEm then use their revolutionary image recognition technology, EyeEm Vision, to show their community which country’s photographs ranked aesthetically higher. Finally, EyeEm share which devices have been most used whilst shooting.
