Digital face of Saint-Petersburg

Pictures in the social network sites Instagram provide many personal information: who are friends of you, what do you eat, how do you prefer to relax and so on. People pictorialize the surrounding, in particular, the city environment. The participants of Summer School «Digital Traces I: Meta-Morphologies of St. Petersburg» made an attempt to analyze in which way city folk  construct the digital “face” of city in their own Instagram-accounts.
