Outlaw instagrammers like Humza Deas and their beautiful yet risky city photography are becoming quite popular on the ‘Gram. Humza is only 17 years old and has gained a following of over 71,000 people on Instagram in the last year. This teen has mastered the art of perspective and really captures the City’s beauty in his pictures. Most of his shots are wide-angle P.O.V. pictures where the bustling city appears quiet and calm. He’s known for sneaking and snooping around places that are technically off limits and further proves the classic photographer’s cliche – anything for the perfect shot.
Recently, Humza decided to follow in the footsteps of many other Instagram photographers and sell prints online. For now, he has only selected 4 prints and produced just 25 of each. These awesome pictures are available on his website right now for a cool $250 a pop. They’re 16×20 and would be a great addition to the walls of anyone’s NYC apartment.
The success of Humza Deas and many others like him illustrates that Instagram can be used as a medium to showcase and monetize art instead of just posting #foodgrams and #selfies.
