Wednesday Whim - Precarious Perspectives


There have always been those who take risks in life. Now, there is just more creative documentation of it through photography. Enter Russian-based photographers, Vitaly Raskalov and Alexander Remnev. Not only do they scale tall buildings without safety equipment (ahh!) but they capture eerily precarious perspectives of where they stand (or lay) with their cameras. Their work captures similar feelings from Detroit-based photographer Dennis Maitland and also from photographer Tom Ryaboi. Far be it for me to say they should not do this without safety nets but I literally get nerves just from seeing these photos. I can't even imagine being where they were when they took these images. Can you? Would you dare to be a daredevil photographer?
