Photographers Sergei Minkin and Anastasia Rostova run an Instagram account dedicated to pictures that are split diagonally across.

Though geometrically-pleasing Instagram accounts aren’t a complete novelty, the level of fastidiousness behind each post puts Minkin and Rostova at the top of the list — something their 40,000 followers would agree with.

While the content itself consists of travel snaps and staged photos, which are already so customary in 2017, you can’t deny that the overall concept is extremely satisfying, especially when the diagonal cut is unusual or consists of multiple objects. Try tilting your head to see the image from its original angle, which doubles up as a daily neck exercise.
