Instagram has long been the playground for pioneering photographers (and cats). Today is no different except that the art sits a lot higher and the artists are that much more crazier. This brings us to the people called ‘Urban Explorers’ – a select group of photographers who make it their livelihood to unearth and showcase the sprawling urban landscape in ways most civilian snappers wouldn’t dare try.
The Discovery Network recently released a short documentary entitled All Points Project: Instagrammers of New York, which tracks the exploits of the New York chapter of these covert adrenaline seeking photographers. The results are all parts stunning, startling and illegal. Don’t believe us? Click through the gallery of the world’s most prominent Urban Explorers and then watch why they do it in the short video below.
