Photographer’s Girlfriend Continues to Lead Him Around the World

Praktik Hotel – Madrid, Spain

Russian photographer Murad Osmann continues to be led around the world by his girlfriend Nataly Zakharova in his ongoing Follow Me project. With her back facing the camera, Zakharova eagerly holds the hand of her photographer boyfriend, guiding him through various locales across the globe. The traveling duo manage to creatively display a variety of exotic and culturally rich landscapes and architecture through their clever set of images.

Since we first featured Osmann's captivating series, the project has gone to take on a life of its own. What started as a series of images on Instagram between the traveling photographer and his beloved partner has turned into a movement, inspiring others to follow suit. Osmann even partnered up with Google for a short video, which can be viewed at the bottom of this post, about how the project started and what it means to him.
