25 Terrifying Death Defying Photography, Shocking Photos You Need to See -DesignBump

We all have a fear of something in life and many of us have a fear of heights. Perhaps the fear is of flying. Or of being eaten by a shark, or bitten by a tiny but deadly black widow spider. Fear is a normal human emotion that the vast majority of us can suppress when needed.

Occasionally people might need professional help to conquer their demons. Particularly if the demon in question is a necessary evil. A aspiring pilot who fears the sky or a racing car driver afraid to go too fast. Or a mountaineer afraid to look down. These are all natural and understandable fears in life. Yet in some professions they have to be overcome.

On the flip side there are those persons who thrive on danger and risk and do their utmost to capture the moment on film or more recently on social media platforms such as Instagram. Thrill seekers such as Russian model Viki Odintcova, 23, who was held up only by the hand of a male assistant as she leaned out into just thin air perched at the top of the 1,004-foot tall Cayan Tower in Dubai, UAE.

You will most certainly explore these images and wonder whether the risk of injury or death is ultimately worth the prize picture. Yet the thrill seekers show no sign of abating their wonder lust for the perfect death defying photo.
