“Shauna Wade’s work is both thought-provoking and eerie. There are layers that typically don't meet the eye.”
In less than two years MoodyGrams has exploded with a global community posting more than 6 million images using the #moodygrams hashtag. Featuring a wide variety of subject matter captured by photographers from all walks of life, the community is highly engaged. On average, photos curated receive upwards of 30k likes and hundreds of positive comments.
Created and curated by Shauna, the MoodyGrams community started through a personal experience with a small band of friends exploring an abandoned building in Queens. At the time Shauna did not think of herself as a photographer nor a curator, but saw how her friends enjoyed the adventure and desired to showcase the beauty captured in their photos. Instagram provided a community of people that had common goals and aspirations, expressing themselves uniquely, which ultimately inspired Shauna to keep building MoodyGrams.
