Daredevil Photographer Takes World’s Riskiest Instagram Photos

Photographer Angela Nikolau has taken selfies to sky-high levels with her thrilling and dangerous shots across some of the world's riskiest urban locations. At just 23 years old, Nikolau is a self-taught photographer who loves living on the edge and proves her fearlessness by taking photos atop the highest buildings across Russia, Hong Kong, and China. Her poses are often elegant and pensive as she tips along the tops of skyscrapers and bridges, balancing delicately along railings and walls.

Along with providing stunning aerial views, Nikolau satisfies her large social media following with creative and adrenaline-filled photos of herself and even includes short videos of acrobatic backflips and handstands at these extreme heights. She fully embraces her Instagram motto of “No limit, no control,” conquering vertical feats such as the Tsing Ma Bridge in Hong Kong, the Goldin Finance 117 building in China, and the Mirax-Plaza in Ukraine.

For those who can stomach more daring visuals, videos of Nikolau climbing, jumping, and even skateboarding across rooftop edges and construction sites can be found on her Facebook page.

Disclaimer: Please note that capturing these photos is a very dangerous act and no one should attempt to try this.
