Every year around this time, Instagram is flooded with photos of spiderwebs. Why are we so compelled to photograph their uniquely intricate designs? And beyond the “oohs and ah’s,” what metaphors can we find in their meticulously abstract threads?
In true Halloween-photo-roundup form, we asked some of our favorite photographers on Instagram and beyond to share their spiderweb photos with us. We encourage you to follow them and dig deeper into their work. Oh, and follow us too, if you aren’t already.
We’ve also included a special trick/treat in the mix – an absurd vintage vernacular snapshot from the collection of Robert E. Jackson. See if you can find it.
