These five Instagrammers have taken experimental photography to a different level. Here are five Instagram accounts that have caught our attention:

High-contrast photography’s all the rage, and few channel the trend as poetically as Jayanta Roy (@jayantaroy_). The Bengali photographer’s career in sales has allowed him to extensively travel the country, his refined eye simultaneously framing subjects, a trusty flash by his side. With his melancholic (and largely achromatic) feed, Roy’s turned fleeting elements like snowflakes, rain, grime and lightning into the literal silver lining for his imagery.

No, we didn’t print a photo of someone’s iris. This is Ben Claremont’s (@benclaremont) take on a geothermal lagoon in Iceland, and the rest of his 360-degree photography might just leave you spinning. Stitching together panoramas to simulate an artist’s point of view, Claremont takes viewers around the world with a mosaic of monuments, cityscapes and nature.

As an actual brand ambassador for camera filters, trust Matthew Stuart Piper (@matthew_stuart_piper) to be at the top of his game. The photographer turns everyday landscapes into richly-detailed and surreal works of art via infrared photography. In Piper’s world, skies can be green, palm trees are topped with pink, and the ground is a stark white. Fine-art style compositions further encourage these vibrant hues to shine through.

Thais Silva (@blackcollage_) is a Brazilian artist who runs a photo collage handle around ‘afrofuturismo’, where traditional and modern iconography meet via quirky cutouts of artwork and vintage photos. We sense a conscious political statement, as Silva covers everything from tribal attire to the Black Panther party, to barbershop fades.

 The artist's obsession with factories in pictureThis Japanese visual artist (@re.i_am) chooses to keep her name a secret. This simplicity, though, is antithetical to her ‘maximalist’ feed, where negative space and breathing room are foreign ideas. Every inch is prime real estate, as she aggressively pronounces colours and textures alongisde new subjects introduced via Photoshop. The pictures may sound uncomfortable, but they’re really quite arresting. Her obsession with factories remains unexplained.
