This Russian Photographer Is Taking The Selfie to New Heights

By which we mean "terrifyingly tall landmarks."

Russian Photographer Kirill Oreshkin is going to extreme lengths to capture the perfect selfie. Literally. Equipped with only his camera and a desire for the perfect shot, the skilled artist is known for scaling some of the tallest buildings in the world and documenting it. Often seen dangling from buildings without any trace of fear (or a harness), Oreshkin has composed an impressive portfolio, including his epic selfie atop Russia’s Mercury City Tower – the tallest building in Europe at 1,112 feet. While we commend him on his bravery, we're feeling a tinge of nausea just looking at the photos. 

Check out the video below in which the thrill-seeker explains his motivation.
