Instagram is a beautiful platform that enables us to share our lives and stories in a visual way. But for some, Instagram is a creative outlet to share specific artistic styles through carefully captured photos. Here are 5 Winnipeg Instagram accounts we chose that bring their own artistry to the platform.
This instagram account makes you feel contemplative. A mix of grainy and smooth shots but with an underlying tone that brings it all together. It's the type of photography that makes you want to know more behind the story of those who are captured. The subjects are thinking, wondering, and living.
At first glance, you can see and feel an uplifting brightness in the gallery. Scrolling down the gallery, you can see there are different themes that appear as time passes. Some are candid photos, and other times many portraits or scenery. @a.dumb is versatile and experimental in that way and you never know exactly what you'll get, but it will always be good.
Personally, my favourite part of @ninetyfifth 's gallery is the perfect photo sets, which are always in sets of 3. Three angles, three ideas, and three parts of a short visual story. The photos are high quality, and taken with much care and purpose.
This account is awesome, and it's self-explanatory! We know that Winnipegers like to complain, but this account is all about why we love Winnipeg. The account manager takes their own photos and shares the culture and scenery that Winnipeg has to offer.
If you love photography, then you will fall in love with this account. From Here and Away is a global community built from the local roots of Winnipeg. Using Instagram as their platform, they cultivate the photography community by getting people to use the hashtag #fromhereandaway to share their viewpoint from wherever they are in the world. They curate their photos thoughtfully, and analyze feature photos to share insight with their followers. They currently have a space at the Forks Market where they continue to share their passion for photography and visuals with the people of Winnipeg.
