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.
