One of the most popular social media platforms Instagram is all about enhancing images using filters, cropping and effects and Thai photographer Chompoo Baritone pulls back the curtain on this artistry in his latest Instagram photo series. The series captures Instagram images in all-encompassing settings showcasing the full photo au-natural with the Instagram version superimposed on top.

Baritone's photo series calls to intention how much of a constructed reality Instagram can be with the ability to change photos with saturation, filters, colors, cropping, special effects and even rotations. This series showcases those edited images superimposed on top of the original full photo revealing the reality behind many of the pre-arranged images. For example, one photo showcases a girl doing a handstand but the full image reveals her legs are actually behind held up by a friend.
