The Manhattan Bridge and the New York City Skyline. "A wonderful person shared a quote last year by Henri Matisse that really resonated with me," says Gucwa."'A large part of the beauty of a picture arises from the struggle which an artist wages with his limited medium.' I think that there is a tremendous amount of truth in the (idea) that when you are limited, you are forced to work extremely hard to get the results you desire."

Rather than enforcing social isolation, de Guzman sees Instagram creating community. “People rag on social networks for being impersonal and distant - I find it to be the opposite, especially Instagram … it’s a visual medium, so language isn’t a barrier. It’s just as easy for someone in Japan to (engage) as someone here, so no matter what time I post, somebody’s seeing it without having to understand the caption. That has great value.”
