Spotting Cotton Candy Colors with @aurelycerise
For an extra dose of cotton candy-color, follow @aurelycerise on Instagram.
Aurely Cerise (@aurelycerise ) chases rainbows of color, and she describes her photography as “fresh” and smile-inducing. “My friends say my art brings happiness,” says the Paris Instagrammer. With color being her creative trigger, Aurely looks at everyday objects and naturally starts composing still life scenes. Whether it’s masking tape, pencils or a cup of coffee, Aurely enjoys arranging random things and capturing them from particular perspectives. “It’s funny to see how many things could be really beautiful when you only change your point of view,” she says. Organizing also helps to overcome her natural anxiety. “When I create a set-up it allows me to channel my stress.”
When Aurely is not out and about capturing colorful sceneries, she lets her creative juices flow in front of a canvas. “This photo explains how i imagine creation. Nothing is planned, the feelings are getting out from my brush and start creating forms.” Her simple advice for finding joy: “Put some color in your life.”

“It’s not a question of the camera lens, just a question of the moment, imagination and expression,” says Instagrammer François Dourlen (@francoisdourlen), a teacher from Normandy, France. Inspired by the daily scenes around him, François is reminded of characters from popular culture and animation films. “I don’t really choose photos to put with the background,” he explains. “The background makes me think about pictures I’ve seen.”
His playful style inserts cartoon characters on real life backgrounds to delight his followers—and himself. He adds: “My message to the world is: ‘Do not forget to look at the world through a child’s eyes.’”
The Dynamic Life through the Symmetry Perspective
To see more photos of heroes in Sasha’s symmetrical world, follow sashalevin on Instagram.
Moscow Instagrammer Sasha Levin (@sashalevin) is always on the lookout for heroes in the landscapes and spaces around him. What turns an ordinary person into a hero? For Sasha, the answer is unexpected: symmetry. “The symmetry of a shot is an empty canvas for my creativity—I try to highlight a perfect symmetrical angle through the people in the composition,” he explains. “My eyes always spot people in the background. It‘s allowed me to show dynamic life in a static frame.” Sasha’s photography focuses on the intimate relationship between people and the space they occupy. “If somebody were ask me, ‘Where is beauty in the world?’” he explains, “I would answer that it is in symmetry.”
