Feeds to Follow: @sarahbahbah
Whether you follow her or not, chances are you’ve come across one of Sarah Bahbah’s (@sarahbahbah on Instagram) works on some form of social media. The photographer’s nostalgic, sensual and often graphic work has gained somewhat of a cult following on Instagram, where Bahbah’s 250,000 followers eagerly scroll through her feed and frequently repost the artist’s work on their own accounts.
Bahbah’s photography, which is often accompanied by tongue and cheek close caption dialogue, embraces a handful of topical themes through beautifully staged and filtered portraits. These intimate settings most often depict love, sex, youth, psyche and womanhood through the eyes of Bahbah’s subjects. Through Bahbah’s lens, however, many of these vignettes seem to break their fourth wall, appealing and relating to the viewer in the process.
