Flora & Fauna, presented by the photography website Feature Shoot at Photoville, is a show about plants and animals curated by Feature Shoot’s Instagram followers opening Friday, September 10 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Over a period of 3 weeks, we sorted through over 9,000 images and posted over 400 images to Instagram, inviting our followers to vote. Our followers cast their votes simply by “liking” the image(s) on Instagram, and the 25 most popular images (from 22 photographers around the world) are presented in this show.

Winning images run the gamut from a pit bull wearing a floral crown to birds swarming above an abandoned farm house in rural Texas. While the theme of the show is lighthearted, the process was an experiment, as we gave control of the exhibition over to the crowd. Some of the most obvious questions/concerns we had were: Would the submitters with the most Instagram followers win? Are there certain “styles” of photography that will be more popular over others? Would the exhibition be filled with cats?

After Sophie Gamand’s pit bull portraits were selected for this show, we started following the Hempstead Animal Shelter on Facebook (where Adrienne, one of the pit bulls selected for our show, is sadly still looking for a forever home). After months of reading the stories of these dogs, many of them pit bulls who have been abused and then abandoned, we’ve decided to give our proceeds from the sale of all prints in this show to the shelter. For inquiries about purchasing a print, please email: [email protected]
