    Hey DN :)

    Three years ago we took 10 photos and gave them away on a hastily made Tumblr blog. And while there have been a few changes along the way, that same site is now one of the largest photography communities in the world with over 8.5 billion photos viewed.

    We may have started it, but Unsplash has only become what it has because of you.

    Today, we wanted to celebrate everything we’ve done together these past few years—from creating the world’s first crowdsourced, open book, to the more than 80,000 photos on Unsplash submitted from around the globe, to the millions of amazing remixes created by the amazing community.

    Check out our special 3-year anniversary site to see all of the amazing things you’ve helped create. And from all of us at Crew, we want to offer a deep, heartfelt thank you for taking a few photos on a blog and turning it into such a supportive, creative, and inspiring community.

    Here’s to many more years together :)

    I really like the subtle animations on the images

      That was the talented Ben Klewais! He made them originally as a school project and then we hired him to do 10 of them for the anniversary. Really happy with how they turned out!

    I remember when you were starting out as a simple tumblr blog. Thanks for all these years!

    I secretly entertain being a future Unsplash contributor, with a future Leica M in hand.

    Good job boys, nice recap and very inspiring story. Props from Québec :)
