19 year old Russian student Marat Dupri bought his first Canon camera 18 months ago and started climbing onto the roofs of houses in order to capture amazing views from the sky, and well… just kept on going higher.
Along with his fearless friends he has snuck past security at some of Moscow’s tallest structures – to photograph some incredible yet and barf worthy images. Oh yeah, no safety harnesses or wires were used in the making of these pics!
‘When I am on the roof I have a feeling that the whole world is by my feet. All my problems and trouble are left somewhere down. The height exhilarates me. I am enjoying with my home town views. It gives me energy and fills with enthusiasm to make new and great shots. I had always been interested in photography and a couple of years ago, I bought my first proper camera. I wanted to try and get the most spectacular pictures I could – pictures like no-one else had taken before. I began by taking pictures from my own roof, but soon I wanted to get bigger and better pictures.’ Marat says.
‘So I went with my friend to the top of a 33 storey building. It was about 120 metres high and we went right out to the edge and I started taking pictures. It was such a thrill, we couldn’t wait to do it again. I’ve taken a lot of the photos by sneaking past guards and getting access to structures illegally. But I think the risks are worth it to take such amazing pictures.’
