Diary is a one-year status compilation from Ben Elliot’s instagrams. Gathering topics such as emotions, feelings, tastes and self-achievements, the book is highlighting timeless human concerns and questioning the meaning of being an emerging creative. Evolving in the context of social media’s full public access to information, it is however an intimate work — intrinsic to the tradition of diarists. Elliot organized spontaneous writings into a narrative work, using the textual elements from a platform predestinated to pictorial content.
