@belilabelle in Wonderland

To see more of Belinda’s surreal scenes, follow @belilabelle on Instagram.

Venezuela Instagrammer Belinda Tellez (@belilabelle) has always had a passion for surreal tales. “As a kid I was kind of weird. I liked books more than dolls and used to memorize passages from ‘Alice in Wonderland,’” she says. These days Belinda writes her own stories through surreal photography, often starring as the main character of imaginative scenes. She views each image as a story or anecdote, which reveal her secrets. “When the pictures become very surreal and imaginative, they also ironically become incredibly real.” Belinda’s creations are often the work of a one-woman show: “I take the self-portraits myself, so when the result is similar to what I imagined, I dance.”

Twisting and Tumbling with Parkour Athlete @pashatheboss

To see more photos and videos of Pasha’s parkour moves all around the world, follow @pashatheboss on Instagram.

“You have to understand I trained for this for nine years,” says Latvian parkour athlete Pasha Petkuns (@pashatheboss). “If you see my videos on Instagram, don’t try to repeat them straightaway.”

Pasha was inspired by watching online videos of parkour, a form of street gymnastics. “It’s a pretty cheap sport. All you need is your shoes.” But parkour can be dangerous and requires extraordinary discipline and physical strength. “I never get serious injuries because I practice everything step-by-step and do physical strength training.”

“If you want to start, start slowly,” Pasha says. “Gymnastics gyms are great for beginners because everything is soft and safe.”
