A British photographer who climbs buildings has captured London from the tops of its buildings.
Jacob Riglin, 20, from Richmond Upon Thames began exploring London when he was younger, cycling the streets with friends building his knowledge and understanding of the capital. Today he scales walls, hangs from scaffolding and dangles his legs from buildings at death-defying heights.
Jacob Raglin is taking his photography to new heights. The 20 year-old British photographer has cultivated a following by photographing London from its rooftops. He scales walls, hangs from scaffolding and dangles his legs from buildings at death-defying heights. “I have always been interested in climbing and getting that adrenaline rush from feeling on top of the world. Rooftopping and climbing buildings gets unique perspectives,” Riglin says.
Riglin has accumulated more than 261,000 followers on his Instagram. Despite taking his “rooftopping” act on the road— around Europe and New York City— London remains Riglin’s favorite place. “London and the people that fill it give me a sense of pride. I will always enjoy [shooting here],” he says.
