Shockingly Creative Man on Fire Photos

Whoever said you shouldn't play with fire would change that motto after seeing these shocking photographs by Benjamin Von Wong. Based in Montreal, Von Wong is driven by dreams that he says, "Inspire me and push me to challenge the impossible in creating unique compelling artwork."

For this particular shoot, Von Wong had a vision and spent a lot of time organizing and planning. He hired a fire-spitting friend as well as renowned stuntman Felix Famelart, who was the subject of these images and actually lit himself on fire. The use of light throughout the images is spectacular and it's really exciting to see the behind-the-scenes video. Any artist will be inspired by Von Wong's motivating words, as he said, "The most important thing is to get out there and try and challenge yourself with new ideas. Push yourself and never stop trying. Be different."
