Who I like to follow on Instagram
…Talented people from Russia! When I first started using Instagram, it was an incredibly creative eye opener for me. I discovered one creative person after the other. I was so happy:) In the beginning I was often fascinated by talented Swedish people. I could sense a common swedish aesthetic which I loved. Light, darkness, snow and coffee. Scandinavian everyday life. Annette Pehrsson was my first big inspiration on the network and she will always be an icon for me. Later I started to follow people from the US and got an uncontrollable urge to go to New York to eat food and drink beautiful coffee. I was like many others also attracted to the style that belonged to the American lifestyle magazine Kinfolk and followed creatives profiles that belonged to the environment around the magazine.
Now I’ve got my eyes on instagramers from the biggest country in the world, Russia. I find the most beautiful profile after the other. I can’t put the exact words of common denominators in their aesthetic expression, but they’re all moving towards a dreamy and poetic universe, which I always will be attracted to. I am especially interested in the way human bodies are portrayed. Furthermore, I sense that a lot of the same color tones are repeated. Deep and bright colors. The stunning nature is also a recurrent theme.
