A BTS Look at the Russian Daredevils Who Take Selfies While Dangling Off Buildings


When Kirill Oreshkin first started capturing photographs from the tops of the tallest buildings in Russia, he was afraid of heights. As the video above goes to show, that fear is long gone… in fact, these days he has no problem hanging off the top of a building with only one hand.

In this nausuea-inducing video put together last week by Vocativ, Oreshkin says this all started because he liked the views of the city and enjoyed the people he got to spend time with while he was doing it. I’d say it’s come a long way since then, but the point is still the same to him: to capture photographs of the city, often with himself in the frame, and hang out with his friends.


The video is pretty short, so if you need a quick rush of vicarious adrenaline to get your day going, give it a watch. And if you’d like to see more of Oreshkin’s photography, be sure to pay his 500px page a visit.
