A profile full of details: @xjunlee’s account is testament to a photographer’s eye for the little things – and the patterns that emerge when you take a step back.

Polina Lotnik

Portrait of young woman
Premium

The term “photography” translates to “painting with light”. That is exactly what Polina shows off on her account: Beautifully illuminated shots with pleasing color combinations – as though someone had actually painted them.

Shaza wajjokh

Using muted colors and rich shadow details, Shaza’s photos have something mysterious about them – but also something that makes you want to look closer.

Anca Asmarandei

Premium

Anca’s speciality are portraits. Some are staged, some seemingly taken on a whim, yet all of them with a little twist that reveals as much about the subject as it does about the photographer.

Here’s another portrait photographer, but with a very different approach: Many of these shots are reduced to a minimum, emphasizing facial expressions above all else.

Ante Badzim

Tourists on beach in summer
Premium

The dominant color in Ante’s photos is white: Sometimes it fills more than half of the frame in a show of carefully-orchestrated minimalism.

Caamila L

CLOSE-UP OF AN ANIMAL WITH BLURRED EYE
Premium

Caamila’s pictures are downright cinematic with their many layers, dramatic color treatment, and unusual angles. Some may seem a bit unreal, but together they make up a coherent, vivid universe.

Artem Frolov

Scenic view of desert against clear blue sky

Judging by his shots, Artem spends lots of time on the road, finding his subjects on drawn out highways and lonely mountain ranges. If these pictures don’t evoke your wanderlust, no others will.

Nicolas Lonewolf

Premium

Nicolas’ subjects span such a breadth that they aren’t easily categorized. Each frame shows a different world, but also manages to tell a unique story. Where and how was it taken? You’ll have to imagine for yourself.
