Japanese photographer Mar Shirasuna moved to New York City over 20 years ago, but it wasn’t until about 2 years ago when he started snapping photographs of the city with his iPhone 4. The photog started taking “very normal NYC scene photos (yellow cabs, times square, empire state building). They were many of the same type photos of NYC on instagram.” Mar then felt the need to change course. in 2014, he taken photographs in over 120 rooftops.
