These fearless photographers are risking their lives to capture breathtaking images of New York as you’ve never seen it before.
Brave snappers are scaling huge skyscrapers to get a unique view of the iconic Manhattan skyline – balancing perilously on roof edges and ladders with no safety equipment despite being just a footstep from certain death.
The stomach-churning moments were taken by a mysterious photographer who is known as @svvvk on Instagram.
The brave snapper, who joins the intrepid explorers on their climbs, said: “It is dangerous, but the risk for the shot looking over the edge is always worth it to me.
“If there’s something out of reach or getting to dangerous, we have a friend lend a hand or call it off and move on.
“One photo isn’t worth anyone’s life.
“My family are okay with what I do. I don’t push my limits past what I know I’m capable of so I haven’t been hurt from doing this.
“I have been caught more than once by building security, but as long as you are polite and respectful to them, they will be the same.
“People don’t realise how much effort some people put into a photo.”
