A friend showed me these photos by photographer Murad Osmann a while ago, and I happened to stumble across them again this week and sat in awe all over again. Murad and his girlfriend have travelled all across the globe and chose to photograph the places they visit in an unconventional yet personalized way.
Instead of snapping photos of landscapes on their own, or perhaps the pair stood infront of a famous monument, he chooses to use his Instagram account, posting beautiful images of his girlfriend leading him, by the hand, through unforgetable landmarks from across the whole world. The photographs show him being led across the world including London, Singapore, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Bali, even a quick snap inside of an IKEA store. The theme is simple, "Follow Me", with the photos being shot with his iPhone.
He describes how "The first photo happened in Barcelona while we were on vacation. My girlfriend was a bit annoyed that I was always taking pictures of everything, so she grabbed my hand and tried to pull me forward. But it didn't stop me from doing photos, that's how it all started".
Osmann is an executive producer at Moscow-based Hype Production and his work regularly sees him jetting across the world to all these unforgetabe locations. The work takes him miles away from home "But after we finish shooting, I often ask my girlfriend to come for two or three days and we continue our project" he says.
