Instagram’s Urban Explorer Movement

A younger generation of urban explorers are rediscovering NYC and posting their exploits on Instagram where they have thousands of followers. These New Yorkers are scaling to the tops of bridges and exploring below the streets of New York in abandoned subways.

Filmmaker Jeff Seal focuses on eight New York-based Instagram photographers who partake in the new craze, dangerously scaling Manhattan’s notable landmarks and adventuring into the uncharted depths of the world’s capital, seeking out the city’s secret, and sometimes illegal vistas. The resulting photographs are absolutely breathtaking, capturing rare, solitary and awe-inspiring moments within the country’s most populated city. Watch these daring explorers speak on their expeditions in the video above.
