Specialising in portrait or street photography, the artists of our Instagram selection #288 explore unique universes, filled with surrealism and symbolism.


On his Instagram account, the New York-based artist-photographer Jay Sprogell brilliantly mixes his own portraits with fashion images, twisted with collage and painting. The result is a pop, symbolic and colourful collection.

Zhang Ahuei, a photographer based in Taiwan, specialises in portraiture. On Instagram, she publishes a collection of delicate images, where women’s faces and bodies blend with their environment. Lost in nature, immersed in metropolises or adorned with plants, her models shine.

We know nothing of the Instagrammer @eme.amala, except that she paints and photographs. Between symbolism and minimalism, the mysterious artist publishes, on her digital gallery, monochrome images where objects, bodies and heavenly landscapes merge. An account that will please the dreamers.
