In this paper we investigate the use of Instagram by citizens engaged with the Scottish Independence Referendum 2014. Using qualitative analysis, we explore the themes that were evident in the images that Instagram users posted in the run up to the vote and highlight the importance of future work in understanding the use of imagery in social media during political campaigns.
