If there’s one thing, and one thing only, that productivity vortex Instagram is good for, it’s finding incredible imagery. So, in 2020, it’s time to unfollow @fuckjerry -- all the good memes are on Twitter anyway -- and instead enjoy it for its original purpose, unearthing brilliant photographers that offer your feed something truly original.

Arielle Bobb-Willis
There’s a clever dichotomy of light and dark that runs through every single one of Arielle’s wonderful, surreal images.

Marta Thisner
Full of passionate kisses, hazy neon-lit rooms and naked bodies, Marta captures the pure hedonistic joy of partying with friends.

Hayley Eichenbaum
If you find peace in scrolling through endless pictures of soft, pastel-coloured buildings in the warm light of dusk…

Chad Moore
Chad’s images are usually shot between sunset and sunrise -- but find colour in even the darkest corners.

Gentle, often captionless vignettes of a pastel-hued life of peace and quiet.

Myles Loftin
Young New Yorker Myles mixes bright colour into his emotional portraits to create joyful celebrations of queerness.

Lea Colombo
The imagery of South African photographer Lea subverts all the conventional norms of studio-shot fashion imagery and turns it into something far more dramatic.

Cailin Hill Araki
Tokyo-based Cailin takes beautiful portraits of the best faces from her sprawling neon city and beyond.

Lewis Vorn
The DIY aesthetic of Lewis’s images makes scrolling through his Insta feed feel like flicking through an 80s style zine.

Elizabeth Wirija
Indonesian SVA graduate Elizabeth shoots beautiful faces with dramatic, often very colourful, beauty looks.

Felicity Ingram
Felicity is a master of capturing intricate beauty looks on street cast models.

Agnes Lloyd-Platt
Another photographer who takes studio portraiture to new places, Agnes utilises bold block colour to elevate her subjects to ethereal heights.

Camila Falquez
A former dancer, Camila utilises her background in movement to help capture her subjects in fluid motion.

Ruth Ossai
One of London’s most intriguing new talents, Ruth brings the vibrant colour palette of Nigerian fashion, film and music into her work.

Li Hui
Often soaked in a hazy apricot evening light, Li’s feed is the photographic equivalent of having an S.A.D. light.

Karla Hiraldo Voleau
A mix of enigmatic subjects and soft, warm colour schemes makes Karla’s work truly beguiling.

Bolade Banjo
Mixing the disciplines of art and photography to create abstract collages, Bolade’s prismatic work comes alive on the page (or the screen).

Nick van Tiem
The nostalgic, muted tone to Nick’s work doesn’t dull its wonderful use of colour.

Jackson Bowley
Smiling faces covered in makeup-artworks. That’s it. That’s the tweet.

Weishan Hu
Exploring the tropes and motifs of her native China in a fresh, alternative way, Weishan’s photography is pure maximalist joy.
