A Japanese photographer has scaled over 150 of New York City’s tallest skyscrapers to get photos of models balancing precariously on their edges.

Mar Shirasuna has captured the nerve-jangling images as part of his ‘Beauty and NYC’ series, reports the NY Daily Post.

The results are absolutely incredible.

Shirasuna said of his art:

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.

According to the Post Shirasuna was inspired to undertake the project after climbing to the top of his own apartment building.

He said:

It’s a really precious moment when I find a new view. I want to share the same feeling I got in that moment with you.

As you’d expect with any art form, the work has come in for some criticism, but the response has done nothing to dissuade Shirasuna from continuing.

He said:

The response has been controversial, however I like the controversy.

Shirasuna’s work will be on display at the ‘NYC From Above’ exhibit at Nepenthes, New York, from March 17.

Definitely worth a viewing if you are in the city!
