Vertigo-Inducing Photos of a Daredevil Hanging Off Ledges

Moscow-based photographer and daring rooftopper Kirill Oreshkin (aka kirill_opex) documents each of his adventurous and extremely dangerous feats as he manages to climb to the top of his city’s towering structures and dangle off the edge, hundreds of meters in the air.

With a fire in his belly, Oreshkin’s penchant for urban scaling has led him to perilous heights and yet the young daredevil appears stoic in each shot–even while he is gripping onto a ledge with one hand! Rather than showing any hint of fear or remorse, the young man performs his life-threatening stunts with an unaffected and unbothered expression. One has to wonder what the ultimate incentive is for Oreshkin, other than capturing unique selfies and living to share the vertigo-inducing images.

Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
