A series of death defying and Daring photographs have been shot on the edge of New York’s Tallest buildings.
Photographer Mar Shirasuna, from Japan, has been shooting New York for the past three years, and he says he has been on more than 150 rooftops in the process.
The photos are a part of a series called Beauty And NYC where women are seen posing on scaring edges of some of the tallest buildings in the city.
He also claims to receive requests from people who wished to be photographed by him. He has over 134k Instagram followers.
The photographer wanted to capture models against the epic skyline of the Empire State Building in the background.
“I wanted a fresh view of New York City, so I climbed to the rooftops of 150 different buildings around town to find cityscapes I had never seen before, and found views that I don’t think many New Yorkers have even had the chance to see.” he told NY Daily News.
In the pictures brave near nude models posed fearlessly balancing dangerously on the edges of buildings.
Daily Mail UK quoted Shirasuna saying, “Right now, we are living through the selfie epidemic, and when I brought some of these people onto the rooftop, they would start taking selfies.My goal for this project was to reinvent the selfie, recreate it and make it something more beautiful and more creative. So, I started taking pictures of beautiful women on the rooftops with my project.”
The idea behind the Beauty And NYC project came to Mar while he was looking for a new way to shoot the city.
The combination of these Glamorous near nude and stomach-churning photographs are just wow!
And we can say, these are the most daring and stunning photos shot by a Photographer, he has created a challenge by doing something extremely off the limits and to match his creativity level in the future will not be easy. He has raised the bar very high.
