If the originality of your Instagram feed is bothering you, then it’s time to accept that classic challenge; how can you take something that you use every day – your Instagram feed – and make it better? To show you just how easy it is, we’re continuing our ‘Who We’re Following’ series with an interview with one of our favourite architectural photographers Christina - aka @Cm.images.
Even from a young age I just loved looking at photographs in magazines of fashion, art or design. I had piles and piles of them. It wasn’t until later that I discovered photography, being behind the camera, as a creative outlet.
Architects like Le Corbusier, Peter Zumthor, Tadao Ando and in art: Marc Rothko, Patrick Caulfield, James Turrell.
My background in interior design encouraged my interest in photography. Plus, the many architectural study trips to many cities in Europe.

On social media you can travel the world through pictures. Buildings and architectural sites that in the past would go unnoticed, you now can discover and see them in a new light. Which is great - there's an endless journey of discovery out there now.
