30 Photographers you should Follow on Instagram (Like Now)

30 Photographers you should Follow on Instagram (Like Now)

As of lately, I decided to step up a notch with my enthusiasm for photography. Not only to snap a picture for snapping but having an idea/concept in your head and trying to figure it out with research and how you would take the shot and etc. To express what you have in mind within the best way possible through the medium of Photography and sharing them. One of my favourite platforms for sharing is Instagram, it's easy to use and you can create a story of every single one of your posts. We decided to put together a collection of 30 photographers you should follow on Instagram, photographers that always bring the A-Game to every single post. Hope you will enjoy!

NYC Under the Ground

NYC Under the Ground

New York City, a city that always has fascinated me. I always question myself about how can so many people (according to Google: 8.406 million in 2013) can co-lived together in the city with so many possibilities and stories. One thing they do share, it's the subway transportation. 34 Lines and serving thousand of people each day. One photographer decided to take a journey in the underground of NYC. Let's follow Joao Unzer. The subway, on the other hand, is one of the few places in town where social boundaries are dissolved. It's where all races, religions and social classes meet and share not only the same space, but also the same situation. The NYC Under the Ground project seeks to portray this sort of equality and democracy that the NYC subway proposes. It captures true spontaneous moments in the everyday lives of real New Yorkers (the kind you don't see in magazines) in the only place in town where hot dog and stock vendors share the same bench.

100 Year Old Houses

100 Year Old Houses

We posted about Zsolt Hlinka work before on a series of images titled Urban Symmetry but he seems to be always producing incredible work. This time we want to share his latest project titled 100 YEAR OLD HOUSES. It's series of compositions that play with perspective, which is my favorite as you might know. Anyway, check out after the break and you will understand why it deserves to be featured here. The location of the series are hundred year old buildings of Nagykörút which are completely reinterpreted by the chosen perspective, changing our ordinary spatial perception. As the buildings are framing the sky, the contrast is getting maximized between geometric, sealed networks of architectural forms and the unsubstantial, infinite space of the sky. Looking at the accurately constructed, central photographs it feels like the buildings are tunnels driving to the infinity of the sky - and this is where time appears, as if the floors leading to infinity represents time and the age of the buildings. Zsolt Hlinka is a photographer and fine artist with focus on architecture. For more information check out http://zsolthlinka.com/

IN EXTREMIS: Bodies with No Regret

IN EXTREMIS: Bodies with No Regret

It's Friday and we would love to end this week with fun (it made me laugh) project on Abduzeedo. It's entitled:  IN EXTREMIS series by Sandro Giordano and it's basically short stories in a photograph about a person's world falling down. With no chance to save themselves, this is such a creative direction and series that is worth to watch and follow. We live in a distorted world of plastic surgery, which perpetuates stereotyped images that feed a preset marketing model. I believe that perfection is in imperfection. It is in strong contrasts, in frailty, and in the humanity that makes each individual different from the rest. I hide the face of my characters in order for their BODY to speak for them. This fall is the point of no return. There’s a saying “you must hit rock bottom to start over”. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Sandro Giordano Before Sandro is devoting his whole time to IN EXTREMIS series, he was originally from Rome, Italy. He graduated from the "Istituto per la Cinematografia e la Televisione Roberto Rossellini" in Set Design. Follow his Instagram for more of his IN EXTREMIS series.

Constructed Series by Pawel Nolbert

Constructed Series by Pawel Nolbert

On Abduzeedo, we love Pawel Nolbert's work. We've featured his series and work many times and again he doesn't cease to inspire us all over again. For this  Constructed series, Pawel create his own reality while being on travel and as I quote: "We construct our reality in our own way. We do that everyday on our Instagrams, blogs and other carefully curated outlets. Knowing that the world around us doesn't look like this, we somehow want to believe that all those often extremely filtered and post-processed images in our IG stream are actually the real thing." I do agree with what he's saying, we'll leave it to you and be the judge of your own World. Series of photos on the topic of perception of reality an the creation of subjective, distorted reality on social media. I took my travel photos and just like we all do before posting it, I messed around with them a bit... trying to create my perfect version of reality...

Cherry Blossoms Series with Kenichi Ueno

Cherry Blossoms Series with Kenichi Ueno

In Japan, Spring Time is the time for the Cherry Blossoms. As I started to see many people sharing their pictures and experiences in my feed. It must be just an exhilarating experience to witness. I imagine the struggle of many photographers to capture such natural beauty with so many tourists at such a busy time of the year. With such commitment, we are featuring the work of Kenichi Ueno and his journey with the Cherry Blossoms. It's my job, also the hobby at the same time. I can't stop making it when good ideas occur.

Silent Night series of the streets of Tokyo

Silent Night series of the streets of Tokyo

With Spring coming into our calendar, those who live or will be travelling the islands of Japan; you'll find yourself immerge in the beauty of Sakura trees. It's the season! Unlike freelance photographer Takashi, he decided to explore another aspect of Japan and it's their streets especially in Tokyo. Not the streets shining with billboards with neons but the eerie, dark and Japanese horror-like ones. Let's follow Takashi on his  Slient Night Series. I went to Naka-Meguro, where there is a river with sakura trees lined up on the side. It looks nice at night with the illumination being done. I got bored when I saw it. Ok, bad habit of mine is that I get bored easily. Sure, sakura at night is pretty, but I wasn’t interested at that moment for some reason. I ended up exploring the alleys around Naka-Meguro. I found something different... (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Takashi Takashi is a freelance photographer currently based in Tokyo, Japan.

A Study in Architecture Photography

A Study in Architecture Photography

I have been trying to publish a photo a day for the past year, actually a bit over than that. Admittedly, I missed a few days here and there. The main reason for trying to make this a habit is to improve and learn about photography. From equipment, to techniques and subjects I have to say that after almost 2 years I've come to learn quite a bit. Still I am more like a beginner/enthusiast than a photographer, but one of the things that I learned is that I love to take photos of buildings and architecture in general. There's something about the contrast of man-made structures with nature and sky that creates an eerie feeling. In this post I'd like to share some of the photos I've taken. You can follow me on: Instagram VSCO

Hibernation Series by Øystein Aspelund

Hibernation Series by Øystein Aspelund

Coming out from the Winter season, the change of climate and temperature get me all fuzzed up about the nature. We don't take much time looking at what's around us, the daily reality that we tend to forget with our busy lives. Well, Øystein Aspelund does understand this concept and his "hibernation" series totally reflects that. The series HIBERNATION is a series which investigates subconsciousness, and the sometimes grey boundary between truth and fiction. It is a personal project that is utilizing man and his relation to the landscape as an investigative tool. Based upon real places and events, this series is intending to catch the moments when our daily reality and our subconscious world sometimes strike each other. It is a stream of frozen moments, where the story between each frame is as important as the frame itself. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Øystein Aspelund Øystein is based from Trondheim, Norway and he's a photographer is quite interested in visual expressions. Coming from an architecture background, he enjoys exploring his images through themes and ideas. Like many of us, Øystein just let his camera takes him, to a different world where people don't usually see. For more information: http://oysteinaspelund.com

Minimal Photography

Minimal Photography

I love minimal photography and try my best to improve my skills but my eyes oftentimes miss the opportunity of capturing a minimal scene. I feel that my photos tend to have more layers and objects. Nevertheless, I still believe I will get there and in order to accelerate the process I started looking for some types of compositions I would love to try to capture. Vassilis Tangoulis masters what I want to achieve, with some Photoshop as well. About Vassilis Vassilis Tangoulis is an International Award-Winning Black and White Fine Art photographer based in Greece. Vassilis is mostly known for his Black and White long exposure landscape photography but he also experiments in color and tries to enter this technique to different photographic genres. His photographic vision is better described as capturing the time in a world where “present” is only an infinitesimal part of time, a fleeting illusion dividing almost infinite past and future.

Tony Murmurings by Franck Bohbot

Tokyo Murmurings by Franck Bohbot

I have been trying to improve my photography skills and I have to say, it's tough. Taking photos seem simple, and it's actually super simple, but training your eyes to see beauty on the day-to-day things is another story. I believe it requires time and practice. Looking to things from a different perspective, or trying to use the rule of thirds for everything is a very demanding task for my brain. For others, like Franck Bohbot that seems to be a piece of cake. We have posted about Franck a couple of times here on ABDZ but every time he publishes something new we feel obliged to post, so we all can train our eyes for street photography.  The photos we are sharing here today are from his collection Tokyo Murmurings, the complete body of work contains between 150 and 200 photographs. We will share just a few. It's also always important to remind all that those images are coypright of Franck Bohbot. You can also follow him on Instagram for archive and new work. At night, the Japanese capital sleeps deeply but isn’t drowned in darkness nor lost in silence. The highly traveled areas of the city transform into a sleeping megalopolis. There, you discover the city’s whispers, its secret passages, and become immersed in oversized typography and images of childhood heroes decorating vertiginous walls. © Franck Bohbot About Franck Bohbot Born in the southernmost suburbs of Paris, France, photographer Franck Bohbot moved to New York City in 2013, and is currently based out of Brooklyn. He is a documentarian with an eye for the theatrical who found his way to photography by way of cinema, and although he turned his focus fully to photography in 2008, the formal and aesthetic influences of the cinematographic form continue to underlie his present work.
