Vadim Mahora and Vitali Raskalovym are a pair of photographers who see the beauty of high places — the kind of high that makes it all worth the risk.
They’ve been working together, scaling well-known bridges, monuments, buildings, and even billboards just to capture breath-taking shots of the city below. Photographing sprawling views, eye-catching details, and the unique energy of the landscape is what feeds their passion, and they’re doing it one country at a time.
However, the shots they take also imply they go beyond the boundaries of not just their fears, but even those of the law. A few years back, Mahora and Raskalovym gained notoriety through a couple of illegal photos they snapped from the top of a pyramid in Giza that went viral in mere seconds. Today, they highlight the fruits of their uncanny exploits on their website, On The Roofs.
