From PTSD and Prison to $8M in NFT Sales
Isaac “Drift” Wright (AKA Drifter Shoots) is an urban photographer whose project “Where My Vans Go” is currently the second-best-selling NFT photography collection ever. The U.S. Army special operations veteran first got into photography as a way to cope with his PTSD and depression. He would scale skyscrapers and climb bridges to photograph the world from a unique perspective – challenging legal lines along the way.
This hobby, unfortunately, led to his arrest in 2020, and subsequent four-month incarceration without bond. Both Wright’s race as a black man and his training and service for his country were used against him.
In our latest episode of the nft now podcast, we spoke with Wright about how NFTs and his artistry helped pull him out of the nightmare scenario.
