Humza Deas was 17 when he started scaling buildings and bridges in New York City in search of the perfect image. The self-taught photographer captures his city from terrifying heights.

His photos helped him land coverage in New York Magazine's "Outlaw Instagrammers" article and gather over 220,000 followers on the app. But fame has made climbing more risky. Deas worries that the New York Police Department is watching and could nab him for trespassing.

In 2015, Deas had an idea: He would send a drone where he couldn't legally go.

The 20-year-old Instagram celeb has found a new niche in drone photography. His aerial images show New York City like you've rarely seen it before. Take a look.
