Bringing a bit of light and uplifting energy to your social feeds as I do every Monday (with the exception of last week, as was a bit exhausted and wanted a break), this is #PositiveInstagramPeople.
It’s our opportunity to shine a light on another brilliant social media account to follow that’s bringing something positive, uplifting or inspiring to other’s feeds and the world in general.
But we also wanna hear from you! If there’s an amazing account you think we should follow – and feature in a future blog – you can message us on our Instagram or leave your comments below. And this week’s one – no pun intended – is a cut above the rest…
Our discovery of London based photographer and artist Rich McCor – better known by his social handle of Paperboyo – was in entirely the appropriate place for us, chiefly when he did a sponsored story with our favourite high street stationer Paperchase back in the summer.
He combines his love of photography with an interest in papercraft that makes for a really unique, engaging and even thought provoking series of still and moving artworks.
Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s challenging, sometimes it’s quirky, but one thing it always is is different and creative, and as a result Paperboyo’s account and his works are one that I always get excited to see new posts from.
And in a time where art and its value and purpose in wider society seems to be dismissed as frivolous or unimportant, Paperboyo’s account is one of the reasons why it is so much more than that on a personal and social level to many.
