Beautiful Gay Couples Photographed Around The World By Braden Summers | Storytelling in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

In his All Love Is Equal photo series, New York-based photographer Braden Summers set out to drive this point home by taking stunning photographs of gay and lesbian couples around the world. Summers traveled to France, India, Lebanon, Brazil, South Africa, the U.S. and the U.K. to take these photographs.

SXSW 2016: Virtual Reality Storytelling Takes the Stage

SXSW 2016: Virtual Reality Storytelling Takes the Stage | Storytelling in the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Knight Foundation’s report on VR in journalism notes, challenges remain:

Despite the experimentation, it’s clear that virtual reality is merely in the beginning stages. Immense challenges remain: The consumer market remains incredibly small, with manufacturers still working on creating headsets that are high-quality, reasonably priced and do not give users motion sickness. Without market penetration, of course, revenue for content producers will remain elusive. Production of top-flight content is also expensive; the cost of cameras, computer processing power and software can easily price out small outlets.
Anca Toader's insight:
2016 has been branded as the year of VR.
