BECAUSE pictures never change but people do, many youth are falling in love with the idea of saving their memories through photography.

Several youth in the Kingdom have inspired us with their work and some of them are always trying to teach us a lesson or send a message but with an inspiring twist.

Many of these artists succeeded in spreading their creative work in the visually focused platforms; therefore, Saudi Gazette choose four Instagram accounts of photographers that are telling special stories and presenting a new social concept through their posts.


A person that lives in the 80s and 90s nostalgia and believes that old is gold, will definitely follow this account. The profile that is created by the Saudi Director Rakan Filmban presents pictures of old money, advertisement posters, toys, equipment, and places in Jeddah that was famous in the past decades. Some of his posts also includes portrait pictures that are edited to showcase the 80s pictures style.


The photographer of this account is posting pictures of random people in Jeddah and their quotes to educate the world about Jeddah city. The idea of the account is similar to Humans of New York project. The account creator, however, has not published new pictures recently.
