You may have guessed it by now, but we're pretty much in love with Los Angeles. Not only do we have beautiful beaches, snow-capped mountains, and desert canyons at our fingertips, we're also surrounded by a city full of artists and makers influencing the world with their crafts. It's no surprise that there's a wealth of inspiring Instagram accounts by creative Angelenos. We put together a list of our favorite foodies, artists, and explorers who each contribute to a visual tapestry of life in our wonderful and diverse city.
If we had to guess, we'd assume that food and lifestyle photographer Bonnie Tsang sets out each day to remind us how rarely we go out to brunch. Her stylish photos capture the communal joys of sharing delicious meals with good friends and make us very, very hungry.
Photographer Jonpaul Douglass reminds us that LA is, more often than not, a surreal place boasting some seriously wonderful oddities. He has an eye for catching LA's quiet, quirky moments, and his #pizzainthewild series is an absolute treasure.
Nastassia Johnson's love for all things cake, sugar, and sweet is on a whole new level. Her coloful photos of icing-drizzled donuts and decadent pies remind us how badly we need to step up our dessert game.
Mayor Garcetti's Instagram account is a daily reminder of just how cool and genuine our civic leader is. His photos aren't just good, they're also funny and give a sense of real admiration for Los Angeles and its people.
