Here at Palladium, we've embraced the idea of exploring the city as more than just a metaphor for engaging with our surroundings or even as an interesting way to get to know a city. That's why we've been so captivated by the phenomenon of rooftopping and the birds-eye perspective it provides. Even if you are scared of heights, the power of these images is undeniable, whether you are looking at a modern city like Toronto, or a much older metropolis, such as Paris.
For some photographers, however, the thrill of trespass and rooftop heights isn't quite enough. Take Russian photography prodigy Marat Dupri, age 19, for example. He's taken rooftopping to its logical extreme and become a Skywalker. Dupri and his subjects take to rooftops, but then push things to the limit by posing on the edge for photos, climbing to the very top of any catwalks, pylons or ladders for the highest vantage point possible. The results are nothing if not jawdropping. Take a look!
