Photographer Rappels Off Skyscrapers to Get the Shot
‘Whatever it takes to get the shot.’ Carlos Ayesta‘s “whatever” involves rappelling from skyscrapers to get his unusual perspectives of Paris. In this beautifully shot BTS video by Guillaume Bression, we see Ayesta rappelling from various buildings and peeking into peoples living and workspaces.
Ayesta has rapelled off the Eiffel Tower, La Grande Arche de la Défense, the EQHO Tower and the Sequoia Tower among others. “I can take pictures of hidden things. No-one on the ground or on top of the buildings can see what I see,” Ayesta says, “The window reflections are magical – you can see life and the landscapes within the same frame.”
