Photographing across India with @khannachandan

To see more scenes from Chandan Khanna’s journey across India, follow @khannachandan on Instagram.

“I enrolled in a Business Administration course in Delhi,” says Delhi-based Instagrammer Chandan Khanna (@khannachandan), “but could not finish it as my passion was always photography.”

Chandan instead became a photojournalist, traveling across his home country of India and sharing his journey on Instagram. “The uniqueness in inanimate objects differentiates one place from another,” he explains, “but the people remain the same, their hopes and despairs remain the same.”

Chandan credits technology for creating a new generation of Indian photographers. “We have plenty of gigabytes to fill in, now we can experiment more than the photographers could earlier,” he says. “We could research more, explore more, see whatever is happening in the world without even moving our head sometimes.”

Capturing “The Human Drama” with @qsakamaki

For more metaphorical documentary photography from Q. Sakamaki, follow @qsakamaki on Instagram.

“Through photography, we can feel, see and freeze the real essence of the human drama and share it with the world,” says Q. Sakamaki (@qsakamaki), a Japanese photographer, writer and educator. He has been living in New York for the majority of his career, documenting social issues in the United States as well as around the world for Japanese publications.

On Instagram, he shares snaps taken on his iPhone, including some experimental shots that he shares to gather feedback from the community. Whether capturing an image of a Harlem-bound subway passenger or schoolgirls in Tokyo, he strives to capture the human elements in moments that affect both individual people and society as a whole.

“My personal philosophy,” says Q, “is that all types of photography somehow contain self-metaphors, even in documentary photography and photojournalism.” As a Japanese living abroad, he takes a more intimate approach when shooting in his home country. “These days, I like to shoot the changing and unchanging scenes that could be metaphors of Japan—or even those of my identity itself.”

Adam Brody es muy carismático y ya se nos había olvidado, así que qué bien que en GQ Korea nos muestran los básicos de siempre del otoño, las siluetas limpísimas de prendas que vamos a usar siempre (desde el sweater negro de cuello alto hasta el abrigo camel) usando de percha a este simpático actor.
