Natela Grigalashvili

Natela Grigalashvili (@natela_grigalashvili) is an award-winning photographer known for long-term projects celebrating the regional diversity of Georgia. The country, not the US state! Her past as a photo reporter and film operator clearly reflect in her dreamy-yet-documentary-style feed, shot almost entirely in natural light. We liked that Natela shows her country’s traditions and people warts and all, from the post-Soviet decline of the 1990s (pictured in high-contrast, black-and-white film) to well-preserved histories in the Doukhobors (‘folk Protestants’), villages, animal markets and Samtskhe-Javakheti.

Gozo

Gozo is one of 21 islands that make up the Maltese archipelago, and perhaps no account is a better flagbearer for it than Gozo Photography (@gozo_photography). A traveller feature page, the handle’s 1,600-plus images—calming, colourful and detail-rich—showcase azure diving spots, lazy hiking paths and charming heritage sites detailing the country’s Roman, Phoenician and Arab past.

Elodie Van Lierde

Elodie Van Lierde (@elodietravelphotography) is a zoologist and teacher capturing the highlands of Papua New Guinea. Tribal populations tend to be over-simplified by outsiders, but her gaze is inquisitive and joyful, portraying cultural intricacies like sing-sings, the masked mudmen of the Asaro river, and a Papuan baby’s first time in a canoe.

Sebastián Di Doménico

Sebastián Di Doménico (@sebastiandido) is part of a new wave of Colombian artists reintroducing the world to its indigenous gems. Erasing Hollywood’s yellow haze, the photographer travels around the country’s forests to showcase rare species and natural heritage. The captions? Heartfelt, yet super informative.
