A city as beautiful as Chicago deserves to be documented, and thankfully there's no shortage of local photographers snapping images that capture the city's street in all their glory. Anyone with a camera and a bit of patience can take an aesthetically-pleasing picture of the Bean, the Japanese Garden in Jackson Park or the Foreman Pavilion in Lincoln Park, but we set out to find some Instagram accounts that go beyond the typical deluge of Chicago attractions and perfectly-framed skyline views. From moody photos of Chicago at night to documentation of ephemeral street art on surfaces throughout the city, these Instagram photographers are providing a way to experience the city's street life by simply scrolling through your phone.

Need some additional Chicago pride on your Instagram feed? We've gathered 17 accounts that capture different aspects of the city's streets and scenery. After you've followed and liked, you can set out and see some of these local spots for yourself—and maybe take a few photos of your own.
