Rooftopping Creates Amazing Shots Of Toronto (PICTURES)

11/11/2013 18:13 | Updated 11 November 2013

Behold the new photographic movement in which groups of urban explorers climb to the top of skyscrapers to take incredible pictures of cities from above. Called rooftopping, these amazing shots of Toronto were captured by Tom Ryaboi who, along with like-minded friends, scales enormous and nearly always 'off limit' towers to take images of each other set against cityscape backdrops.

Speaking to HuffPost UK, Ryaboi shied away from the daredevil, thrill-seeker tag, offering a more nuanced explanation for why they climb: “The real reason it [the movement] has grown is because its captured the minds of young adults who feel like they've been cheated out of genuine experiences.

“Underneath all the crazy looking photos lays a group of men and women (mostly in their 20s) who are disenchanted with their social networking, video gaming and over regulated societies. They are treating their -urban- environment as they should, a place full of wonder and adventure.”
