Most Insane Thing You’ll See Today: Russian Teens Capture Death-Defying Images Climbing Moscow’s Tallest Structures
December 13, 2012
Have they no fear? There is a new trend among the young and brave in Russia called “Skywalking,” where groups of teens are climbing to the top of towering structures and buildings to capture heart-racing images from above. Two such daredevils are Vitaly Raskalov and Alexander Remnov, who have created a portfolio of photographs from their vertical ventures. These two men have scaled some of Moscow’s greatest heights, from bridges and water towers to skyscrapers, posing in nail-biting, dangerous positions. Oh, did we mention they do it all without any safety equipment? Gulp! Read more.
While Raskalov and Remnov may be conquering perilous feats, they are also carving out a photographic niche all their own. The two skywalkers have captured images of Moscow that have never been seen before, offering new perspectives from thousands of feet in the air. Their work, though sometimes dizzying to look at, is a unique (and fearless!) take on the bird’s eye view.
