Exploring Vietnam’s Paradise Cave (Động Thiên Đường)
500km (310 miles) south of Hanoi in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, a small portion of a beautiful cave opened in 2011 and now attracts local and visiting Instagrammers to capture what’s inside. Paradise Cave (Động Thiên Đường) is part of cave system that extends for 31km (19 miles), making it one of the longest dry caves in the world. Though originally discovered by a local in 2005, the cave was later explored in full by the British Cave Research Association. The explorers also gave the cave its name after being impressed by the extraordinary limestone formations with towering stalactites and stalagmites that they found inside.
Creating and Capturing Paper Abstracts with @ninoisy

For Thailand graphic designer Karuna Khettanurak (@ninoisy), patterns are at the core of her creativity. When she began to experiment with transforming paper into various designs and posting them to her Instagram account, she received suggestions from her followers for further exploration. “My Instagram friends recommended ideas to me from other artists who made interesting creations from paper, and I did find a lot of them after doing some research,” says Karuna. Since then, the works of these artists have become some of her inspiration in what she calls her “abstracts.”
Karuna says that paper and photography are “like two worlds colliding.” She folds, stacks, cuts, sculpts, curls and weaves her papers, then captures them in different angles to create unique designs. Karuna often shoots in a room with low lighting and either places her paper abstracts on a light box or by a window to get natural light. Reflecting on her fascination with capturing paper, she says, “It’s so close to us but we overlook its value. I was so surprised to find the art hidden inside.”
