Photographing Vertigo

Life On The Edge is a series of vertigo inducing photographs by Detroit based photographer Dennis Maitland. They are beautiful but they also kind of make you want to puke.

Dennis say of the photo above:

This was probably the happiest day in my life. This building was amazing. I knew I was on a time limit so I made a bee line for the roof…of course. I didn’t know what to expect but I was really happy with what this roof had to offer.This is officially the highest “dangle” as of now. Definitely higher then 18 floors, not sure how much though. All I know I I had to climb 3-4 ladders past 18.

All of these photos were taken by hand and locations were accessed without climbing equipment.
