Stories from Chicago’s South Side with @jonlowenstein

To see more scenes from daily life on Chicago’s South Side and learn the stories behind the images, follow @jonlowenstein on Instagram.

Photographer Jon Lowenstein (@jonlowenstein) came to Chicago’s South Side on an assignment fifteen years ago and made a home in the poverty-ravaged neighborhood. He began photographing his community with SX-70 and 4x5 film cameras, leaving a trail of Polaroid portraits with his new neighbors who nicknamed him “Photoman”. He transformed vacant apartments within his housing complex into community exhibition spaces called “The Island”, and taught photography classes at a local elementary school.

“When I started the project on the South Side, analog was the only way to go. Nowadays so many people in the ‘hood use Instagram that it is a real way to communicate on a local level, as well as national and international,” Jon says.

He credits his college classmate, David Guttenfelder (@dguttenfelder), for exposing him to Instagram, where he now pairs images from his neighborhood with the stories behind them. “I believe that the iPhone is the new Polaroid: I love that I can share my thoughts and observations in real time as I do the work. I find this part most satisfying when I can actually talk with people who I don’t know about issues that I cover.”

Circling the Globe with Hula Hoop Champion @marawa the Amazing

For more photos and videos from her hula-hooping adventures around the world, follow @marawa on Instagram.

For Instagrammer Marawa Wamp (@marawa) better known as Marawa the Amazing, hula hooping isn’t just a backyard activity—it’s a way of life.

"I am a professional hula hooper," says Marawa, who lives a nomadic lifestyle traveling, performing and teaching hula hooping around the world. "I studied hoops at circus school—true story—but there wasn’t much of a hooping community back then. It was either hooping in the circus or hooping dancing at a festival, neither of which I really got into. I worked at finding the types of shows and events that I wanted to be a part of and now have established a style that is kind of its own thing."

Marawa’s hooping travels have led her onstage with major musicians, to fashion weeks in London and Paris and even into founding her own junior league, The Majorettes (@themajorettes), who teach classes of their own in London. Marawa also once famously spun 160 hoops simultaneously, breaking a world record.

Minimalist Scenes from Assam, India with @prince_sarmah

For more photos and videos from Prince, follow @prince_sarmah on Instagram.

19-year-old Instagrammer Prince Sarmah (@prince_sarmah) captures and shares minimalist scenes from his hometown of Assam, India. “I don’t even know how this style is developing—maybe I am more attracted to minimalist style to show how simple things can be influential.”

Most of Prince’s subjects are things he finds out in the streets such as animals, fruit stands and bikes. Instead of capturing them in their context such as in landscapes, he has a unique way of closing in on the focal point. “I don’t like to put the subject in the middle, so I cut out a portion of it and put it in a corner,” Prince explains. He also makes a conscious decision to shoot subjects “based on their relation with light.”

"Indian culture is rich in art, but due to the faster moving life here, people get less time to focus on it," says Prince. He feels strongly about motivating the younger generation to be more proactive about exploring their creativity. "I am influencing my friends to use Instagram, and someday, I want to organize an InstaMeet here, too.”
