Instagram Takeover – Imdad Barbhuyan

New Delhi-based visual artist Imdad Barbhuyan creates atmospheric and intimate scenes by bringing out the poetry in the ordinary and mundane. Exploring themes of melancholia, memory, desire and intimacy, they create a dream-like world that inspires contemplation and encourages a deeper connection with the natural world.

Contemplative in nature, their varied body of work is an amalgamation of editorials, portraits and still lives; documenting beauty and projecting a harmony between the natural world and human existence. Their work has an air of mystery and a metaphorical dimension to it; there’s certainly more than what meets the eye, inviting the viewers to immerse themselves in their world and become a part of their imagination.

Imdad Barbhuyan is taking over @paperjournalmag from today until the 28th of June. You can follow them @imdad_barbhuyan and see more of their work at
