Murad Osmann is a Russian photographer based in Moscow. He initiated the ‘Follow Me To’ series with his wife (then-girlfriend) Natalia Zakharova, which went viral in 2012. Osmann being a photographer used to stop at every other spot to take photos. His wife Natalia used to get annoyed by his habit of stopping every now and then and thus, she would pull him away. But meanwhile Osmann took photographs while she was pulling him and this sparked the ‘Follow Me’ series.
So, it was actually Natalia’s impatience that gave birth to the ‘Follow Me’ series which has since become a social media phenomenon. Osman currently has 4.1 million followers on his Instagram account. He also revealed that originally all #FollowMe photos were captured using his iPhone. However, now Osmann has bought a DSLR camera to have a wider field of view.
