Happy Monday, everyone. Today’s photographer of the day is Antonio Jaggie, aka @kostennn, an 18-year-old New Jersey native. He’s passionate about his craft and frequently explores the unseen urban depths of New York City. But he’s not alone. Jaggie is a part of a crew of young, street culture-enthused rooftop photographers in New York who climb towering structures to take pictures of the glowing city below.
Living only 20 minutes outside of the city, he aims to devote his time to urban exploration, and has already gained over 100,000 followers on Instagram. He tells me he experiences a rush each time he exits the train and arrives in New York. “NYC has so much to offer a person behind the camera. There’re so many stories you can shoot, so many ways you can develop a style in this city. You can be anything you want behind a camera in this city,” says Jaggie.
