I can’t remember the day I started following Frans on Instagram. I imagine it may have been through some photography channel or hashtag; maybe even through the travel section of Instagram. I can, however, remember his undeniable style, swag and expression of art through his images. They tell stories, millions of them and you can start interpreting them with each new image. It’s utterly inspiring.

Frans lives in Paris and because I knew I was going to be there for a few days, I nervously messaged him on instagram. Here’s the thing; I don’t think it’s weird to meet up with people you only know through social media and never met before, but some people might and that’s okay. I thought he might be one of those people who thought it was weird. There is that 50-50 chance so I asked him if he could show us around for a few hours and well, here we are. He brought along his friend Priscila, who was extremely friendly, funny and is also a really dope photographer. She captured these beautiful images on the steps of Petit Palais.

Make sure you follow them both on IG @thecoolhatboy and @urbjungle. Oh btw! I wore this hat to pay homage to the Frans’ aesthetic. How’d I do?

I’m a fabulous example of an exhausted wanderer.
