Multimedia StoryTelling

Meet Maddie (on things)

leave a comment »


Instagram has become a huge vehicle through which more and more people are sharing their stories with the world, one photograph at a time.

I have been following Theron Humphrey (@THISWILDIDEA) for several months now. I was immediately intrigued by his story and interesting photographs, most of which feature his adopted coonhound named Maddie posing with funny props or on top of random things.

Humphrey has over 226,000 followers that, like me, are interested in his story, the incredible bond he has made with his adopted hound.

Humphrey is traveling around the country to seek out 50 different pet adopters in 50 different states to help them tell their story of adoption.

His photographs have been featured by National Geographic and CNN.

Although Humphrey isn’t telling hard news through his photographs, he is still a great example of multimedia storytelling.
