Today’s Featured Instagrammer, Alice Gao, Captures Stunning Photos Of NYC
With a following of over 777k followers, NYC based photographer Alice Gao (aka alice_gao) hardly needs an introduction.
What most people would be surprised about is that her start actually came when she started documenting her life on the famous blogging site Blogspot under the username lingered_upon. She still blogs there and if you’re a fan of her Instagram grid, you’ll want to check that blog out pronto.
So yes, while Gao did get her start on Blogspot, it’s no surprise that it was Instagram that helped her garner her now die-hard fans.
Her increasing popularity these past three years has also helped her work get published in the NYTimes T Magazine, Food & Wine, Refinery 29, Anthology Magazine, WSJ Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller UK, and Kinfolk Magazine. Other clients also include AirBnB, Crate & Barrel, Square as well as Madewell.
Of course, she deserves all this success, too. After all, she’s done what many New York based photographers have always dreamt of doing: Capturing the quieter side of this marvelous city.
So why not head on over to her Instagram and click that follow button? It’s practically inevitable once you see her work.
Below are just some of her stunning photos which she addresses as her “iPhone snaps.”
