Sochi at High Altitude: Vadim Mahorov
This is one in a series of “death-defying photos” from Vadim Mahorov, who has traveled around the former Soviet Union, taking photos at the top of buildings, bridges and statues:
“Russian photographer Vadim Mahorov goes to death-defying heights for the perfect shot. While the thrill of scaling buildings, towers and monuments is part of the allure, the dramatic aerial landscapes Vadim captures are absolutely breathtaking. Although many are quick to lump Vadim with other youths simply looking for the rush of infiltrating places they shouldn’t be, Vadim shows a clear passion for photography.
Some of the images below show the dizzying heights he and his friends scale, while other shots show the beautiful scenes he captures from his unique vantage points not many photographers will ever reach. This gives his work a unique perspective of cities around Russia. Vadim runs a very active blog at dedmaxopka.livejournal.com where he shares all of his work and travels.”
