Russian student Marat Dupri, 19, bought a Canon camera 18 months ago and immediately decided to start taking shots of beautiful views. He began climbing onto the roofs of houses to capture spectacular views from the air, before deciding to go to even greater heights. Together with his fearless friends and models, he has sneaked past guards at some of Moscow’s tallest structures - to produce incredible yet stomach-churning images.
Our stomaches are definitely churning here at Probably Don’t. While this video has been out for a few months, we couldn’t help but reflect on this trend which has recently reappeared in the media. The bold risks being undertaken in such tasks, whilst amazing, seem almost as if you hoped the people up there had made sure to say their final goodbyes to loved ones down below. An extreme take on crazes such as ‘planking’ - which has definitely had a similar humorous introduction, and subsequent risks, followed by devastating fallouts.
Marat said: ‘When I am on the roof I have a feeling that the whole world is by my feet.’ ‘All my problems and trouble are left somewhere down. The height exhilarates me. I am enjoying with my home town views. It gives me energy and fills with enthusiasm to make new and great shots.’
Indeed, Marat we’re sure the rush of adrenaline and ‘view’ would be well worth the risk. If not to merely entertain the world for a matter of weeks.
All we ask of you is to probably don’t lose your balance!!!
