This week we decided to change things up and feature one photographer in particular. Instagram user @black_soap has been consistently submitting jaw-droppingly beautiful photos of New York City for months, always surprising and inspiring us. From Brooklyn to the Bronx and everything in between, @black_soap shows us the city from its best vantage points and proves that gritty is beautiful too.
