Balancing Minimalism and Whimsy with @wideeyedlegless

For more of Madelynn’s beautifully crisp photos, follow @wideeyedlegless on Instagram.

Years ago, artist Madelynn Furlong (@wideeyedlegless) turned to Instagram in search of a new creative outlet. Madelynn is now a successful designer, stylist and blogger in Minneapolis, and her photos on Instagram continue as an expression of her art, refined into a casually elegant, almost black-and-white style.

"Over the past few years I have been slowly rooting myself in minimalism," she explains, "and my feed isn’t the only thing that has turned basically black and white—my house and wardrobe both have as well!" Although her photos often feature sleek interiors and crisp fashions, Madelynn says that it’s her own personality that makes her work special: "I focus on contrast, clean lines and the rule of thirds—but still with a heavy dose of whimsy because that is what makes me, me. When it comes down to it, just take pictures of things that you think are beautiful and inspire you. That’s all that truly matters!"

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPthriftshop

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The goal this weekend is to explore your local thrift shop or flea market and come back with creative photos to share. Some tips to get you started:

  • You can find all sorts of treasures and oddities at thrift shops. Gather a few of your favorites and stage them in a neatly organized composition.
  • Second-hand clothing is often a great window into the styles of the past. Grab a friend, bring home a few vintage finds and experiment with staging a fashion shoot.
  • Thrift shops and flea markets are often fascinating places on in their own right. Explore the space and look out for natural photo opportunities as you stumble upon them.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPthriftshop hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
