OMAR ROBLES HAS DEDICATED the last two years to photographing ballet dancers in cities. Since Cuba has one of the top-ranked ballet companies in the world, he made it a goal to visit there next.

The stunning photos below are the result of his trip.

Robles explained in a recent blog post, “Ballet dancers make us feel as if their movements are truly effortless. This while pushing their bodies to the very extreme of what is humanly possible. It is that grace and elegance which mesmerizes us.”

You can explore more of Robles’ work on his website.


This Instagrammer/photographer captures stunning photos of ballet dancers in the streets of Cuba - travels

Do you watch Instagram Stories? They’ve become my guilty pleasure. Every night, I devour them like I’m watching reality TV. Here’s my #1 favorite…

For those who don’t know what Instagram stories are: You’ll see them when you tap on a person’s Instagram profile photo. They’re collections of short videos and photos that disappear after 24 hours. (FYI, you can view Instagram Stories only in the Instagram app, not in a browser.)

My current favorite Stories are from The Home Edit by Clea and Joanna, two professional home organizers based in Nashville. They’re hilarious, endearing and neurotic. While Instagram photos can be so idealized, Stories are more raw and fleeting. I can’t stop watching them.

This is their typical glossy Instagram photo.

And here’s a still from today’s Instagram Story. Clea is describing how she gives her friends, family and employees the exact Pantone color of the coffee-milk combination she prefers, so they can get her order just right. Joanna is making fun of her for being high-maintenance. I’ve watched so many of these episodes that they feel like my friends, and I start laughing before they even begin talking. They often discuss the calming rituals they do on flights (“I’d rather be in labor than on a plane,” Joanna recently admitted), how they freaked out when they got to organize Gwyneth Paltrow’s pantry, and their Container Store obsession.

You have to find your people on Stories — some people do confessionals, some do live commentary during TV shows, some reveal the behind-the-scenes at work, some show their babies slow-blinking to sleep. They can be hugely compelling. A few that we love in the office: Jenny Komenda (interior decorating and musing), Chad Jamian (his garden, his cat and general LA funniness) and Hillary Kerr (fashion and anxiety).

What about you? Do you follow anyone on Instagram Stories? Do you publish your own? Are you really into them, too?


2. Visit Viñales Valley, one of the best things to do in Cuba

The Viñales Valley is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Cuba. Not only is it one of the most popular natural areas in the country, but it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Monument.

What makes it a must-see in Cuba is the gorgeous natural landscape of native plants and mogotes. These rounded mountains are no taller than 100 feet, but they’re eye-catching. Since they formed from limestone, the Caribbean rains have gradually eroded them, creating caves. Some of these caverns have underground rivers, such as the Cueva del Indio, which I will tell you about later.

2. Visit Viñales Valley, one of the best things to do in Cuba

As I mentioned in our guide to the best things to do in Viñales, you cannot miss the area’s coffee and tobacco plantations. I also recommend standing in front of the Prehistory Mural, a large painting on the rock of the mogote Pita. However, this area of ​​the island has much more to offer.

We loved this bike tour, but be prepared to end up sore because the slopes are killer. If you want to save yourself the effort, this electric bike tour may be a good option.

I recommend spending 3 or 4 days in this area, although if you don’t have time, you can take this 1-day tour from Havana to see the most important things.


Jaedon + Path, On Route to El Mirage, California, 2016

Regardless of location she shines. Whether on stage or on an off-road path, the level of professionalism Jaedon demonstrates is exceptional. If we see a spot on our way to our final destination, she is always willing to give it a try. This is what happened when we saw this scene to our left.

We parked to the side of the road, tried to enter a bit and realized that it was best to stay near the road. Jaedon got ready while I put the camera together. Once this scene was composed onto the ground glass of the Hasselblad, I knew we were at the right place. She took her place and we began to expose a roll. Everything just seems so natural with Jaedon, from the drive to the conversation to the photography.

She went back and forth between two worlds, from dance to fashion. With Jaedon these two worlds exist at the same time, true grace and harmony. Releasing the shutter is difficult at times, for it is like watching a performance and trying to remembering to release the shutter once the moment presents itself. Thank goodness she is aware of this and pauses now and then with this in mind.

I look forward to our next collaboration, and to showing the girls in India as well as in Cuba a sister back in the States named Jaedon.


10 Travel Photographers you have to follow on Instagram

Instagram is full of travel inspiration. From golden sunsets to engaging portraits and spontaneous moments. I love using the app to find my new favourite travel photographers, and each of the 10 I’ve chosen below offer a different style and sense of place for where they travel. We hope you enjoy each and every one of these incredible accounts, and don’t forget to follow them for more of their beautiful work!

1. Jon Collins @easternsuns

Jon Collins is a travel photographer and writer uses Instagram as a storytelling platform. Each of his beautiful, dream-like photographs is accompanied by a detailed caption describing where and how the photograph was shot. His photos focus around water, rolling hills at golden hours and his fascination with humanity, which he captures so well. Jon has recently travelled to Japan, Hong Kong and Myanmar, as well as showcasing older images from places like Sudan, Yemen and Nepal.

2. Yulia Denisyuk @insearchofperfect

Yulia Denisyuk captures the world beautifully and I particularly love her photographs of Kazakstan, her native country and a place she gives wonderful insight and understanding to. She has also recently showcased some NYC photos, and yet again her unique perspective show the city in a totally different light compared to most other Instagrammers. She’s certainly one to watch!

3. Marianna Jamadi @nomadic_habit

A long time favourite of mine, Marianna Jamadi and her blog Nomadic Habit are one place you must go for constant wanderlust. Marianna has travelled around the world, capturing it all through her camera lens and on her blog. She is a recent recipient of the VSCO Artist Initiative and has chosen to follow dancers in Colombia. It’s a fascinating story, so make sure to take a look.

4. Natalia Horinkova @_nata_Â

Natalia Horinkova is currently travelling through Madagascar and she offers incredible insight into the country and the people who rule it’s waters. Both above and within the ocean, she follows tribes people and fishermen and captures unique and everyday moments which bring you right in the moment. It’s made me yearn to visit Africa’s most mysterious island nation!

5. Rachel Isley @rijselyimages

Rachel Isely describes herself as a frequent flyer, and indeed she does seem to be constantly travelling to exotic and colourful locations, from India to Panama to Cuba and beyond. I love her style of photography: colourful, vibrant and with a deep and personal sense of place.

6. Müjgan Afra Özceylan @mujganozceylan

Exploring the Middle East has never looked more perfect than through the eyes of Mujgan Afra Ozceylan. Her Instagram follows her through her native Turkey, Tunisia and Paris among others. She shoots on both film and digital and captures forgotten moments and subtle light perfectly.

7. Melissa Findley @melissafindley

Australian photographer Melissa Findley captures incredible golden light, landscapes and ocean scenes. She travels regularly around Australia, the South Pacific and Asia, and also releases zines of her work. Her latest one is available here. I love the peacefulness in her shots and how her personality constantly shines through her work.

8. Drew Hopper @drewhopper

Drew Hopper is much more than just an Instagrammer – he is quickly making a name for himself as one of the world’s leading travel photographers. His work is constantly inspiring me, merging the grounds between travel photography and photojournalism. He has recently travelled extensively through India and his shots are some of my very favourites.

9. Rachel Claire @fieldnotes__

Rachel Claire’s deep love for the earth and outdoor beauty is very evident through her photographs, which are mostly in shades of emerald green or copper gold. She’s currently travelling through Europe, and has previously spent time in the Middle East, where she captured the streets of Libya and Egypt.

10. Stephanie Dandan @infinitesatori

Stephanie Dandan, aka Satori, has got to be one of the Internet’s most inspiring storytellers. Her work, which is rooted in words but accentuated by her photography, inspires me endlessly to live a life without fear. She’s recently spent time volunteering in Nepal and trekking to Annapurna Base Camp, but is now back in the USA with upcoming plans to head to Hawaii.

One more for good luck…? Go and follow my travel photography account at @annapurnauna (nothing like a bit of self promotion right!?)
