As an intern, I find innovative work in the nooks and cranneys of the web and place them side-by-side with others, as if to applaud them and simultaneously say, “This is how we do it, world” like only Montell Jordan can.
The days of simply snapping mundane images around the globe are fleeting, and instead the growing and ripple-worthy trend of dynamic travel documentation remains.
