This dude did handstands around Paris and Instagrammed the crap out of it

Paris is one of the world's most photographed places, so capturing a fresh perspective on the French capital can be tricky. For one artist, it required taking matters into his own hand(s), literally. The 29yr-old break-dancing photog filled up an Instagram account with pictures of himself performing handstands around the city. Dubbed the "OneHandStand project", here are some of the highlights.
