What makes an Instagram account worth following? For most people, it should serve some useful purpose, whether it be to inform the user of upcoming trends or to fulfill his or her desires through vicarious means.

But perhaps the most meaningful use of an Instagram account is to reveal to the world your current perception of who you are. Unfortunately, the app has become an excessively social space over the years; one that is overrun by selfies, outfits-of-the-day and poorly-taken party shots. Nowadays, it seems as though greater importance is being placed on staying socially relevant than sharing and preserving things of substance.

Thankfully, there are still a handful of Instagram users that still value artistry and creative expression. The following Instagram accounts are curated by young Canadian visionaries with distinct points of view and a true passion for what they do.

They have the ability to portray the world around them in a unique distortion without stripping it of its rawness. Each of their photographs causes you to think beyond what you see; to carefully consider each image as a different chapter of the same compelling narrative.
