Follow Me (c) Travis Hodges 2012

While some people use Twitter to waste a few hours of work time, London-based photographer Travis Hodges has used his account as the inspiration for his latest photography project, Follow Me.

Hodges wanted more from his time on Twitter than just making the odd, mundane comment about what he’s up to during the day, instead choosing to meet up with the most active person he followed and taking their picture for The Follow Me project  That individual was then asked to select someone that they follow for Travis to take a picture of. And so it began…

“Online social networking is changing the way people build relationships,” says Hodges.

“I set out to illustrate one thread within this huge interconnected network. Each image gives clues to the subject’s online identity and is accompanied by a ‘Twintroduction’ from the previous subject,” he added.

Along with getting a thumbs up from us, the lead image in this article has been selected to appear in the Royal Photographic Society 155th International exhibition. That’s no mean feat.

Travis isn’t entirely sure when the Follow Me project will come to an end, but with the infinite amount of people he could meet via Twitter, we’re looking forward to seeing the unique individuals he’ll meet in the future.
