For generations, Lego bricks have fueled the imagination of both children and adults alike. For many of us, some of our fondest childhood memories involve our Lego creations. And I know more than a few people, my boyfriend included, who think that one of the biggest perks of parenthood is being able to play again with Lego, guilt-free. Today, Lego is the biggest toy company in the world, beating even Barbie on sales. So it’s not surprising that Time Magazine has ranked Lego in the first place of its list of the most influential toys of all time.

In Instagram, Lego fans have an ideal outlet to display their fantasy worlds. And just like in any realm of the Instagram universe, there are many different ways to do photos with Lego. For all of you brick lovers out there, I’ve prepared a small selection that I hope you’ll enjoy. These are my favourite Lego Instagram accounts.

Top Lego Instagram Accounts

@avanaut

Helsinki-based illustrator and photographer Vesa Lehtimäki has been designing Lego scenes for years. His work mostly revolves around big blockbuster movies, such as Star Wars, Lord og the Rings and Indiana Jones. As you can see, his photography has a strong cinematic quality that makes him stand out among the rest.

Sarah Beyer is an AFOL from Sweden who builds architectural models made entirely out of Lego. Her houses feature sober tones, clean minimalist furniture, and lots of plants. The degree of details in her creations is simply astonishing. I kind of want to move in into one of these!

@legojacker

Kanesan Nathan is a mobile photographer based in Canberra (Australia) who likes to take his Lego characters out in the real world. After he was featured by Instagram as a suggested user, he became one of the most popular Lego accounts out there.

However, what is most inspiring about this Instagram account is not the great sense of composition or vibrant colours. The best thing about @legojacker‘s photos are the captions where he draws attention to the plights of people and different worthy causes from around the world.

@mr.__brick

Mr. Brick’s Instagram account is a dream for movie fans. He recreates some of the most epic scenes from movies and TV shows. As a Game of Thrones fan, I particularly like his Character Progression shots, in which he features different characters from the show and their evolution in it. Can you guess from which movies are the scenes below?
