2016 has been a crazy year. From a tumultuous US presidential election, to celebrity deaths and political unrest around the world, we're ready, though somewhat scared, to move into the New Year. In these uncertain times, photography keeps us image-obsessed nerds going more than almost anything. Admittedly, aside from the onslaught of new photobooks, blogs (yes, blogging's not dead), and studio visits, Instagram continues to be one of our go-to sources for visual inspiration. So behold: 18 of our favorite photographers we've featured on our Instagram over the past few months. Do them a favor and follow them now. XOXO, and Happy New Year!
