Instagram serves as a wonderful place for creative people to share their talents. And there are some people on Instagram who take creativity to the next level, resulting in images and videos that are simply breathtaking, or downright super cool. Here you’ll find a selection of incredibly talented and creative photographers and digital artists to follow on Instagram. Note that often digital artists create something unique and their own creative vision of a place which isn’t necessarily what you would see at the destination. So it’s worth bearing that in mind and appreciating their work for the incredible art that it is.

Rich aka Paperboyo has a unique style where he uses paper cutouts in his photography to show you a different perspective to the norm. Through his account, you’ll see the Colosseum in Rome taken over by a giant octopus, towers in Dubai transforming into fighting robots and a whole host of other creative work. Rich’s feed is actually based on travel, so he explores the world then creates his own way of sharing with you the places he visits.
