12 Cultural Instagrams you should be following
If you’re bored of Instagram showing you the same posing celebrities or you just want to add more variety to your feed, then here are some suggestions for you, ranging from travel to food to interior design…
For those who are looking for inspiration for their future travels, or just want to explore the world through other peoples photos, then @bkindler is the place to start. Specialising in landscapes, these vidvid and colourful places explore out of the restricting squares.
For more action packed photos,@zakshelhamer often captures himself in amongst the action, whether it’s on snowboards or riding waves on his surfboard.
Having moved to Paris,@parisinfourmonths photographs beautiful architecture and food with bright filters, which make you want to jump on the next Eurostar train over.
Continuing the theme of photography, @vagfrag’s dramatic images use a variety of angles and high contrast in editing to create stunning photos of primarily human built structures, but also those of nature.
For human portraits and a mixture of urban and natural landscapes, @natgeo collates spectacular photography, and allows followers to ‘enjoy the ride and the world through the eyes of the National Geographic photographers’ – professional and talented people.
Whilst it is not technically photography, author @rmdrk posts extracts and quotes from his novels which are often nice to see scattered through your Instagram feed as a change from the norm.
Primarily being known as the lead singer of Florence and the Machine, Florence Welch’s Instagram @betweentwobooks is a book club for those who follow her. From The Great Gatsby to Never Let Me Go, her Instagram allows followers an insight into the inspiration for some of her songs as well as inspiring her followers herself to read a wider variety of books.
@martynbullard’s extravagant Instagram provides Hollywood glam furniture envy, having designed for the Osbournes, Kardashians and Tommy Hilfiger to name a few, as well as photos of his inspiration along his travels.
But if you’re looking for a more clean, neutral look, with bursts of colour @homepolish provides ‘beautiful, affordable interior design.’
Noticed by Cosmopolitan for her style, @fashionisblack takes simple, classic items of clothing and documents her daily styling of them on her Instagram page, mixing low cost buys from online stores with the more expensive top end brand pieces.
ELLE Accessories Director, @mduenasjacobs, is a must follow for fellow magpies. While the glitzy pieces on her Instagram may be a little out of the range for us students, it’s a good way to discover the statement pieces you should be investing in this season at a smaller price on the high street.
Finally, if you’re looking for an all encompassing food, landscapes and literature Instagram, blogger @Theculturechild has it all in a simple, clean style. Primarily photographing on a white background, the colours of the objects in the frame stand out and brighten up any feed.
