Exploring “Ghost City” (город-призрак) in Seredinkovo, Russia

For more bizarre and beautiful photos from “Ghost City” in Seredinkovo, explore the Город Призрак location page.

Old taverns, abandoned docks and ghost ships are all part of “Ghost City” (город-призрак), a park located in the small town of Seredinkovo in the Russian countryside. The park premises were originally constructed as a Russian movie set in 2010, and were designed to look like an 18th-century European city. Now open to the public, the former film set allows visitors to explore the “city” and dress up in period costumes. With replicas of prisons, gallows, hotels, cemeteries, a fort and more, the park offers opportunities to capture time-worn landscapes for visitors and Instagrammers alike.

Bracing Nature “At Its Most Raw and Wild” in Norway’s Lofoten Islands

For more photos and videos from Norway’s Lofoten Islands, explore the Skrøva location page, browse the #@skrova hashtag and follow @eivindnatvig on Instagram.

Nestled among the craggy mountains of Norway’s northern coast, the Lofoten Islands are some of the most idyllic on earth. Situated on a small group of islands, the fishing village of Skrøva is home to just a few hundred residents, and tourists flock to the area in the summer months seeking retreat from the modern world. The natural arctic surroundings provide the perfect setting for hiking, watching whales and spotting the Aurora Borealis in the clear night skies. With just a few daylight hours for most of the year, long sunrises and sunsets bathe Skrøva’s white sand beaches and jagged mountain backdrop in a pink light.

Living in Skrøva also lets you experience weather “at its most raw and wild,” says local Instagrammer Eivind Natvig (@eivindnatvig), who captures breathtaking moments from Skrøva’s natural landscapes on Instagram. “Skrøva is somewhere you can experience human vulnerability to the elements,” he says. “When storms come in, we are often isolated from the rest of the world, which provides a wonderful freedom but has its own set of challenges.”

"As one of a handful of people lucky enough to live on Skrøva, I have the unique opportunity to witness and share the daily changes in our incredible nature with Instagrammers around the world," says Elvind. "I hope my photography can bring something different to the way people see Lofoten."

On the Fringes of London’s Street Style with Damien Frost

To see more photos of the characters Damien captures, follow @harmonyhalo on Instagram.

“I’m often attracted to the more flamboyantly dressed—people living their own opera and acting out their theater on the street.”

Damien Frost (@harmonyhalo) is an Australian graphic designer who lives in London, where he makes posters for ballet and opera houses. Though self-described as reserved and conservatively dressed, Damien is drawn to the eccentric. Every day after work, he searches the city—sometimes for hours—until he has a “random encounter” that produces a portrait of a stranger’s creative style.

“I’m attracted to people on the fringes, whether that be on the fringe of fashion or gender or just what is considered mainstream,” Damien says, “but sometimes it might just be a little subtle touch, a flower in the hair, nice makeup or just a general style that the person seems to be inhabiting very well.”
