#WhoIFollow: Barcelona’s @isabelitavirtual

This weekend, Instagram celebrates its third birthday! To mark the event, throughout the week we’re sharing a special series of #whoifollow features asking Instagrammers to share their favorite person to follow. For this second installment, we’ve asked Isabel Martinez (@isabelitavirtual) from Barcelona to share hers.

Isabel Martinez (@isabelitavirtual) began using Instagram in 2011. Working as a copywriter in Barcelona, Spain, Isabel says her work influences the scenes she captures: “I love sharing stories, playing with mystery and color. I usually add a concept that changes or gives a twist to the image.” In the last year, @vogueitalia invited Isabel to participate in an exhibition alongside professional photographers, and Spanish designer @officialdelpozo brought her to New York to document Fashion Week. “I had never though of myself as a photographer, but that changed a few months ago. I realized that sometimes intuition is more important than knowledge.”

Isabel draws inspiration from Instagrammers she follows all around the world—from the connections she makes and the different points of view she encounters. Her favorite person to follow is Raphaël Liais du Rocher (@raphaelliais) of Morocco. “Rafa is the kind of person that wants to evolve and experiment on Instagram, and that’s something very important to me. His personal view on Morocco is always inspiring.” For more from Isabel and Raphaël, be sure to follow @isabelitavirtual and @raphaelliais on Instagram.
