Through Instagram, it's possible to visit every corner of the globe through photos and videos. We asked three people to share their favorite Instagrammers from another country. "I love that people have the chance to notice the beauties around them that often tend to go unnoticed," says Neda Monem (@nedamonem), an English teacher and musician in Tehran, Iran. Neda's favorite Instagrammer outside Iran is Spanish food photographer Aiala Hernando (@aialahernando). "I like following people with a unique style," she explains, "especially if their feeds make me hungry." What started as a hobby “has become one of the most powerful ways of connecting with amazing people," says Aiala, who travels the world but calls San Sebastián home. Aiala recommends April Flores (@aprilflores). "April makes me feel emotions with her photos, like each of her pictures has a beautiful story behind it." "In college I studied chemistry and I dream of someday becoming a botanist somewhere with an ocean and big beautiful mountains," says April, Brooklyn-based founder of home goods collection @native_kind. April offered documentary photographer Brian Nyongesa (@briannyongesa) as her favorite Instagrammer abroad. "When I look at his photos I feel as if I was there experiencing those moments as well. He captures people in their natural essence so beautifully.”
