With its youthful vibe, bustling urban center and coastal location, the city of Boston has more than enough for up and coming artists to draw inspiration from. We decided to take a deep dive into the Instagram accounts of the city’s most promising new photographers.

Kan Kankavee

A Bangkok native, Kankavee now resides in Boston as a photographer. His photos are primarily depictions of urban life, and he has a unique ability to make even the most hectic aspects of city life seem beautiful.

Greg DuBois

Mainly focusing on natural landscapes (and the occasional bottle of Jack Daniels), DuNois’ work truly captures the essence of the New England countryside—especially in the fall. Check this out.

Tom O’Keefe

O’Keefe’s work is lighthearted and accessible, but in no way does that detract from the artistic merit of his photos. He has his finger on the pulse of the city and, whether it’s street art or food, represents it honestly and accurately.

Bryan Xavier

With long exposures and a particular affinity for nighttime, Xavier’s work perfectly captures the vibe of New England and eccentricities of its residents after the sun goes down.

Jamie Bissonnette

An accomplished chef as well as a photographer, Bissonnette’s camera work is food porn actually worth looking at.

Ashley McKinney

Dividing her time between Boston and LA, McKinney documents her travels at home and abroad with photographs of the world’s most beautiful places and the interesting people who live there.

Christian Borger

An architecture student based in Boston, Borger’s work is the artistic culmination of his knowledge of architecture and talent in photography.
