Wanderlust: Five Photographers to Follow on Instagram

Five G&G contributing photographers whose photos will leave you eager to hit the road

Around the G&G office, we’re all a little envious of our photographers. When they’re not on assignment for us, photographing everything from juke joints in the Mississippi Delta to Texas quail fields to Mardi Gras parade routes in New Orleans, they’re globe-trotting on other jobs, heading to India, Italy, Armenia, Tanzania, Scotland, Mexico, the Caribbean, and beyond.

The Instagram accounts of these five G&G contributing photographers will tempt you daily to clear your schedule and pack your bags.
