Termed as an "Outlaw Instagrammer," 17-year old Humza Deas is only one of many scaling the skyscrapers of Manhattan in the early hours of the morning in effort to capture the most improbable, dangerously exciting views of the city.
From the Manhattan Bridge to the top of Times Square, nothing is out-of-bounds for these thrill-seeking urban explorers. With over 55,000 followers, these pictures speak for themselves. Enticed by the mystery, inspired by the adventure, and envious of the courage, I found these images speaking to my own aspirations. So naturally, I followed Humza. I will likely never climb the Brooklyn Bridge (nor any Manhattan skyscrapers), but I found myself wanting to identify with his experiences, even if that means simply observing from afar.
