It may be common knowledge by now that Instagram is a mixed bag when it comes to self-expression, and it’s easy to get tangled in a web of overindulgent, perfectly posed portraits of a colorful life that may or may not exist as advertised. However, these four photographers are here to welcome you to a perspective that’ll inspire you to push boundaries rather than push for perfection.

@honeylong and @prue_stent AKA Honey and Prue

A captivating and boundary-pushing artistic duo, Honey and Prue set out to challenge the traditional perceptions of the female body by contrasting the soft and sensual with different textures found in and around nature. They are not just behind the camera, they often portray themselves in their art along with friends or any other willing participants. The result is a compelling aesthetic which recalls all kind of very human yet somehow other-worldly themes.
