10 Photos That Prove That Everything You See On Social Media Is A Lie – #9 Made My Day

You’re a liar if you say you’ve never felt inadequate after scrolling through Instagram. All those perfectly posed, filtered snaps of dream holidays and fancy coffees filling your feed is enough to make anyone feel bad about their life choices. But as much as you think you’re missing out, in reality you’re really, really not.

Thai photographer Chompoo Baritone knows this, and her latest series will make you feel a lot better about yourself. Using the traditional Instagram square frame as the focal point, she shows us what really is going on outside the box of lies. By placing posed Instagram fakes into less-than-alluring backgrounds, she reminds us that reality isn’t as perfect as it looks on social media, while making us giggle in the process.

On the flipside, you might also see yourself in the satirical series. It could be pretending to be better at yoga than your really are, or making that city break seem much more glamourous than it really is, but we’re all guilty of embellishing the truth in our snaps sometimes – whether we admit it or not! Baritone’s work is the perfect reminder that we should spend less time making ourselves look good online, and spend more time actually living.

Take a look at the hilarious series below.

Such a pretty view! Oh…

Sea not as blue as you hoped it would be? Don’t worry, the Clarendon filter will fix that!

No Instagram feed would be complete without Kinfolk – AKA the hipster Bible – and a plate of perfectly placed health food.
