12 incredible photos of London from above

Isabelle Aron

Afraid of heights? You may want to look away now. A group of photographers have spent the last seven years clambering up onto London's highest rooftops (using slightly dodgy methods) to capture some seriously ace photos of the city from way up above. They've now published the fruits of their labours in a new photo book, 'London Rising: Illicit Photos From the City's Heights', which features personal accounts of their experiences climbing up chimneys, freestanding pylons and onto the roofs of council blocks, the Barbican Centre and the British Museum – as well as of lots of lovely (if vertigo-inducing) snaps.

Here's a sneak peek of some of the photos from the book:
