The 12 Types of Instagram Photos: An Illustrated Guide

Ever roll your eyes at a typical Instagram photo? Artist and illustrator Joanna Zhou created a series of perfect illustrations called “12 Types of Instagram Photos” that showcase the various kinds of pictures you’ll typically find on Instagram. You know the ones. Those of food, people’s legs when they’re suntanning, or their new manicures are all examples. Whether it’s people taking glamour selfies, millions of dog and cat pictures, or boastful workout photos, these are Instagram pictures you’ll actually want to miss out on.

In the series’ Facebook album description, Zhou writes:

I’ve been addicted to Instagram lately and noticed a lot of overlapping themes in other people’s and my own uploads. Here’s an illustrated guide on the most common pictures!
