For the uninitiated, Instagram is a social media app that allows users to edit and share photos, and it’s become a popular place for planners, architects, and, yes, politicians to share their eye with the rest of the world.

(And, of course, here's a few words of caution about the dangers of too-shameless self promotion.)

The list includes photographers from some of the most picturesque and endlessly interesting places around the world, including Johannesburg, San Francisco, Mexico, and more. The article by Marta Bausells includes quotes from the photographers about how their cities and subjects inspire them.
