Brooklyn-based 'Vic Invades' might deem himself an urban explorer and photographer with no boundaries but some might call him crazy. Yet, one can't deny the images and videos he's taken are awe inspiring. Many of his shots have been taken in spaces that are restricted, desolate and sometimes incredibly dangerous. His video 'NYC 2' documents his process as he travels New York City. He's not alone in what he does either, this amazing but frightening video captures himself along many other men who do the same thing.
Millennials and especially Gen-Z kids tend to have a fascination with capturing every moment of their lives -- the more unique and crazy something is, the better. It explains why so many Instagram accounts like Vic Invades exist and why viewers are interested in watching him as he moves through the city. Photography and video producing have become the norm and many companies like Instagram, Snapchat, and Apple have recognized this. As for the risky behavior, well companies have picked up on that too; parkour-based editorials for fashion lines are one example off it.
