Why can't the Facebook and Instagram apps see anything in my Android gallery?

My device is an LG V20.

I just noticed this today while trying to add a photo to a group on Facebook. Both the Facebook and Instagram apps think my gallery is empty. Facebook actually displays a page that says: "you don't have any photos or videos here." "Gallery" is displayed at the top. Instagram just displays no images.

As far as I can tell, the gallery is working fine. I can view all my pictures in the gallery and can use the share feature to add pics to Facebook or Instagram. This limits my ability to share multiple images.

I have run a Malwarebytes scan which discovered no issues.

Any ideas on where to start?
