This guy’s name is a mystery but I’m guessing its Abid considering: @aabbiidd


This account captures the old architecture and art of Pakistan so effortlessly.┬áDon’t forget to pick your jaw off the floor after this.

 


Nade Ali: @nadealy


I don’t know what this particular type of photography is called, it is so hypnotic to look at.

 


Ehtisham Bangash: @ehtisham_ahmad


This is one of the few accounts that really shows off all Pakistan’s beauty and diversity.

Mahhad: @travelnames


So many places and so many faces.

"You ruin your life by tolerating it. At the end of the day you should be excited to be alive. When you settle for anything less than what you innately desire, you destroy the possibility that lives inside of you, and in that way you cheat both yourself and the world of your potential. The next Michelangelo could be sitting behind a Macbook right now writing an invoice for paperclips, because it pays the bills, or because it is comfortable, or because he can tolerate it. Do not let this happen to you. Do not ruin your life this way. Life and work, and life and love, are not irrespective of each other. They are intrinsically linked. We have to strive to do extraordinary work, we have to strive to find extraordinary love. Only then will we tap into an extraordinarily blissful life."

Moving on from photography….


Rehan Bashir: @rehanbashir


Rehan is a fashion designer at Komiar Rokhni but he frequently instagrams his inspirations for his designs. Being a kathak dancer himself, he also posts about the ancient dance form, which is a treat to watch on your phone screens.

Salman Toor: @salman.toor


I remember seeing this artist and his work while shoulder surfing, I don’t regret it one bit.

 


Saba Khan: @sabakhan82


Saba’s work redefines our understanding of art as paint on paper. There’s so much going on, it may look chaotic at first, but the longer you look the more you’re mesmerized.
