If you are a street photographer or simply like street photography, who should you follow on Instagram?
Discovering the work of others, learning from them, could be an amazing source of inspiration for you.
Robert Mapplethorpe said ''the more images you see, the better you will be as a photographer''.
To admire the works of others is to discover a new way of thinking, a different perspective. It also means diversifying one's sources of inspiration for one's own work.
In no particular order, check out some of the most dynamic and substantial Instagram accounts dedicated to street photography.
