Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPcarcorners
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
This weekend’s tag was #WHPcarcorners, which asked participants to capture the details of cars from a unique angle. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.
Chasing Musical Moments with Director @nabildo
"When I hear music I like, my mind turns into a pinball machine," says Nabil Elderkin (@nabildo). “Music, traveling and even some self-doubt are probably what drive me the most creatively.”
Though Nabil is perhaps best known as a video director—his recent work includes John Legend’s “All Of Me" and Beats by Dr. Dre’s "The Game Before The Game"—Nabil also self-identifies as a photographer and “amateur professional.”
"My film work can be pretty dark," he admits. "I like to think I am a little more approachable and humorous on Instagram."
His account reflects this playful, almost music-video-like sensibility, and often feels like a scrapbook of vibrant street photography from his international travels.
"I chase birds all over the world with my iPhone,” jokes Nabil. "When I get off a plane in a new place, my lungs fill with a new air."
On the Fringes of London’s Street Style with Damien Frost
To see more photos of the characters Damien captures, follow @harmonyhalo on Instagram.
“I’m often attracted to the more flamboyantly dressed—people living their own opera and acting out their theater on the street.”
Damien Frost (@harmonyhalo) is an Australian graphic designer who lives in London, where he makes posters for ballet and opera houses. Though self-described as reserved and conservatively dressed, Damien is drawn to the eccentric. Every day after work, he searches the city—sometimes for hours—until he has a “random encounter” that produces a portrait of a stranger’s creative style.
“I’m attracted to people on the fringes, whether that be on the fringe of fashion or gender or just what is considered mainstream,” Damien says, “but sometimes it might just be a little subtle touch, a flower in the hair, nice makeup or just a general style that the person seems to be inhabiting very well.”
