Entering Mystical Worlds with @charlie_davoli

To explore more of Riccardo’s abstract sceneries, follow @charlie_davoli on Instagram.

Italian Instagrammer Riccardo Schirinzi (@charlie_davoli) layers images to create imagined worlds by “playing with paradoxes and mixing up real environments with surreal interferences.” Using iPhone editing apps for the process, Riccardo’s inspiration is the real world around him.

“When I walk down the street, I shoot anything that catches my attention, creating a data base of potential photos to work with,” he explains. “My influences are the metaphysical stream of De Chirico, the geometry love of the Bauhaus era and the super pop culture of Warhol and Lichtenstein—all mixed up and topped with a bit of retro-futuristic sci-fi style.”

All of his works are driven by the fun and freedom of creative expression, and Riccardo enjoys sharing his fantastical settings. “I’d love that anyone could enjoy a ride in my amusement park. Just like going on a roller-coaster!”

Diving Deep with Real-Life Mermaid @hannahmermaid

To keep up with Hannah’s underwater adventures, follow @hannahmermaid on Instagram.

Mermaid model Hannah Fraser (@hannahmermaid) doesn’t just have a passion for deep water, she considers the ocean to be her workspace. Outside coming face-to-face with whales, manta rays or even sharks, the most challenging part of her job is staying calm and maintaining a natural appearance while underwater. “I need to slow my heartbeat down by mentally relaxing, going into a meditative state where I am not thinking about anything other than where I am and the feeling of being comfortable and at one with the underwater world. This is especially important if I am swimming with wild animals.”

Exploring “Ghost City” (город-призрак) in Seredinkovo, Russia

For more bizarre and beautiful photos from “Ghost City” in Seredinkovo, explore the Город Призрак location page.

Old taverns, abandoned docks and ghost ships are all part of “Ghost City” (город-призрак), a park located in the small town of Seredinkovo in the Russian countryside. The park premises were originally constructed as a Russian movie set in 2010, and were designed to look like an 18th-century European city. Now open to the public, the former film set allows visitors to explore the “city” and dress up in period costumes. With replicas of prisons, gallows, hotels, cemeteries, a fort and more, the park offers opportunities to capture time-worn landscapes for visitors and Instagrammers alike.

Capturing the Moods of the Sea with @rochajuliana

For more photos from Copacabana’s moody shorelines, follow @rochajuliana on Instagram.

“I am not sure where Copacabana beach ends and Juliana begins,” says Brazil Instagrammer Juliana Rocha (@rochajuliana) of her #copacabanasentimental photo project. Each day, Juliana shoots Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach in an attempt to capture the beach’s daily moods through photography and witty captions.

Although she’s originally from Brazil’s Northeastern state of Ceará, Juliana has always felt a draw to Copacabana over the eight years that she has lived in Rio. “The beach is the place where the ocean meets the sky,” she says. “Its infinite nature symbolizes everything that is unknown about life.” Her photo series began on a day when she came up with what she describes as an “infuriated” sea. From then on, she felt increasingly in tune with the waters. “In the beginning,” she explains, “I was able to separate my emotions from the emotions of the sea. Today, it’s as if my feelings and the emotion in the photos blend together completely.”
