If you’re afraid of heights you may want to look away. Marat Dupri is a beginner photographer, who risks his life scaling sky-high buildings to take incredible photos of the world below. He began climbing onto the roofs of houses to capture spectacular views from the air, before deciding to go to even greater heights.
He says he has sneaked past guards to get access to structures illegally, but says it was worth every risk. link | via
Skywalking basically involves a photographer making his way up to a death-defying height, and snapping a photo that’s meant to give you both a perspective you’ve never seen before, and that feeling like your stomach just made its way into your throat.
Incredibly, there is no sign of any safety ropes or harnesses as they perch on the edge of lofty landmarks in Moscow.
Most people would probably be too terrified to crawl out on a ledge without a safety harness, but Dupri says the experience offers him a sense of serenity.
Dupri may even have exposed himself to high levels of radiation, once climbing to the top of a radio tower. He says he experienced a headache for several days afterwards — and it wasn’t from the vertigo.
