Today, almost everybody owns a mobile camera phone. With it, people take pictures of almost everything and anything. We have probably become the “best documented” generation in the course of history. Some of the best photos you’ll see are those that capture the picturesque views of places from all over the world.
With respect to its fervor towards photography, Vancouver-based, design-driven global accessories brand Herschel Supply Co. introduces CityLimitless, a detail-oriented content series that focuses on photography and insight by members of the Herschel Supply Co. community to celebrate unique design stories from cityscapes all over the world. In the series, local architecture, beautiful spaces, side streets, and aerial views capture the urban culture that brings each city to life.
Introduced in early 2015 as #CityLimitless on Instagram, the global community has embraced the tag—populating it with myriad images as diverse and inspiring as the cityscapes they depict. It now lives as a content series on the Herschel Supply Co. blog and features dynamic cityscapes from places such as Tokyo, Rome, and New York. The hashtag #CityLimitless has successfully established itself in the Instagram community with over 90,000 photos tagged in less than a year since its conception.
Herschel’s very own co-founder and managing director Lyndon Cormack flew to Manila to personally introduce the #CityLimitless campaign in celebration of our cities’ shapes, sights and vibes. Lyndon Cormack artfully shared his travel experiences and showcased his photos taken from iconic places in Manila.
Alongside Lyndon Cormack were three local progressive photographers and notable Instagrammers Jelito de Leon, Marvin Conanan and Aaron Quinto whose works of art have also been put on view. Manila’s inimitable charm showed in each of their photos, which emphasized exquisite details that captured the city’s underestimated, yet undeniable beauty.
The event was an artistic expression and perfect example of Herschel Supply Co.’s fine regard for detail. Each participant was reminded that if you look well enough, you’ll find hidden gems wherever you might be.
