Don’t look down! Daredevil takes stomach-churning images after climbing some of Asia’s tallest buildings
These are the stomach-churning images of a fearless daredevil who scales some of Asia’s tallest buildings – just for fun.
Thrillseeker Ivan Kuznetsov, originally from Russia, has reached the top of skyscrapers in the likes of Hong Kong and Shanghai.
The 20-year-old rooftopper said that he actually finds climbing quite difficult, and that he does not advise others to follow his lead.
Despite the difficult climbs he has embarked on – including looking down on the 101-floor Shanghai World Finance Center – Ivan said that he is not scared of heights and trusts himself while scaling the mammoth constructions.
He admits that his parents are worried about his dangerous hobby, with this favourite style of shot, looking directly down and including his feet in the frame, doing little to ease their concerns.
Many of the climbs he has undertaken have been with friends, so that they can aid each other in taking pictures.
In the future, Ivan plans to travel around Europe before one day visiting the USA, his dream home.
Ivan said: “If we seen an interesting object, we climb it; you never know what is coming next.
“The main things in our business are courage, ingenuity, and intuition.
“I think that climbing is very difficult, and I do not advise others to do it, as it’s easy to injure yourself or even fall.
“I like to make images that are shot down with my feet hanging over the roof; they demand more and are quite showy.
“My friends and family are worried – especially my parents – but they understand that I am grown up.”
