6 cool Instagram accounts to follow this week…
12th September 2017
I love photographs. That’s why I love Instagram, it’s like a little gallery in your pocket. I’m always on the lookout for cool new accounts to follow so I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you…
Food and travel photographer and one half of The Curious Pear, you may have seen Issy’s dreamy photos in the Guardian, Suitcase Magazine or even Vogue. Perfectly imperfect plates of simple food and the odd travel snap that makes you want to pack your bag and jump on the next flight. Issy’s pictures are full of life and combine two of my favourite things in one beautifully colourful package.
I stumbled across one of these books in a cute shop around the corner from my flat in Stoke Newington and instantly fell in love with Vincent Mercier’s retro depiction of Los Angeles. I’ve been a follower of Portraits de Villes ever since, the collection illustrates cities through the unique view of an artist. It’s such a lovely way to explore a city – through someone else’s eyes.
You may have seen Elle-May on her other half’s Instagram, 1924us. Whilst you can expect the same vintage-style photographs that make you long for adventure and want to completely overhaul your wardrobe, Elle-May also creates the most beautiful moving cinemagraph images. They’re truly mesmerising to watch, even if you’re sometimes playing ‘Where’s Wally’ trying to find the extremely subtle movement. (In case you were wondering, and to save you a few minutes, the below photos are stills. Head over to Elle-May’s Instagram to see her cinemagraph imagery.)
Yep, this is a whole Instagram account dedicated to pictures of payphones, but the pictures are wonderful. Think cool colours, street art and cityscapes.
Simple living at its best. Delightfully styled pictures along with oodles of home inspiration and a couple of very cute kids. I’m way too messy to recreate this picturesque lifestyle… but one can dream!
A relatively new account supplying some much-needed laid back Californian vibes to my Instagram feed. Dreamy colours, old cars and cool aerial shots… yes please!
