Photographer Faces His Fears To Get Thrilling Views Of Terrifying Heights
Do not to look too closely at these photographs if you have vertigo.
In an attempt to overcome his fear of heights, Detroit-based photographer, Dennis Maitland sought out the highest locations for the vertigo-inducing images in his series, Life on the Edge. Instead of a remote shutter release, he took his camera and captured each photograph himself, sitting on the ledge of a building while his legs dangled dangerously over the edge, snapping the scene below. Using a wide angle lens and focusing on his kicks, the perceived height appears much lower than it actually is.
