Delicate and detailed, the tiny floral tattoos of Toronto-based artist Lindsay Asselstine are whimsical works of art. Asselstine—who goes by Lindsay April on social media—is known for her simple, sketch-like style and nature-inspired pieces, ranging from miniature portraits of pets and animals to dainty depictions of flowers and foliage. As an artist at Toronto’s Golden Iron Tattoo Studio, April is often commissioned for her expertly executed flora-and-fauna creations.
Similar to the daredevil photography of Dennis Maitland and Tom Ryaboi, Russian thrill-seeking photographers Vitaly Raskalov and Alexander Remnov reach incredible altitudes to capture some astounding visuals. As if snapping shots from such great heights weren’t enough, these two photographers actually scale these gargantuan towers and massive buildings without any proper safety equipment. Once at the top of their destined conquest, they photograph their vertigo-inducing, albeit breathtaking, point of view. They even take the dangerous liberty of posing in recklessly daring positions, as though they don’t have a care in the world.
This sort of high-risk feat, now referred to as skywalking, appears to be a popular trend amongst Russian youths today. On the internet, we’re all really blown away and grateful for the exciting images that result from their laborious and dangerous efforts, but city officials are not nearly as keen to praise their stunts. The reward for the adventure-seeking youths lies in the glory of having accomplished their dangerous goal and living to share their experiences with us all.
