Balancing on the Edge – Part 2 (8 photos)


Daredevil Eskil Ronningsbakken hasn’t fallen to his death yet and he has more amazing balancing act photos from his home country of Norway to prove it.

Describing his performances as “expressions of art,” the 30-year-old is currently touring with a team of 10 people as part of a documentary about his incredible achievements. The crew has been visiting some of Eskil’s playgrounds, recording brand new stunts for the first time.
