Stunning images offer unique perspective of world’s cities snapped from their tallest buildings
These stomach-churning images offer a unique perspective of the world’s cities – snapped high above the ground by a fearless roof-topper.
While rooftopping images have become increasingly popular over recent years, pseudonymous OlegCricket adds distinctive – and extremely dangerous – elements to his sky-high shots.
In some of scenes, Internet-star Oleg can been seen dangling from roofs, cranes and spires hundreds of feet above the ground.
And in others, the daredevil-come-photographer is even snapped swinging his friend, Ilya Bagaev, high above the ground with nothing to break their fall.
He said: “I can only compare it to a computer game – except here if there is an error or loss, you cannot start the game again.”
Oleg, from Ekaterinburg, Russia, began scaling structures nine months ago.
Since then, he estimates he has reached the top of almost 50 buildings – travelling to the likes of Germany, France, Dubai and Hong Kong in the process.
By posting his photographs on social media, Oleg, 24, has gained more than 100,000 followers on Instagram.
Despite the obvious risks involved, Oleg said he does everything he can to appear fearless in his photos.
He added: “Fear is in each of us, you have to experience fear – that’s normal.
“I do not express it in my photos, though.
“I like the height and enjoy doing great shots to see the reactions of those who subscribe to my Instagram.”
