City Climbers / J. Walter Thompson London
Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov are two Russian photographers and city explorers also known as “on the roofs” – http://ontheroofs.com/. Looking beyond familiar sights, they search for unique and spectacular photos that can only be captured from the tallest buildings and that they instantly share with their community.
Canon and J. Walter Thompson followed the pair on their latest climb in Dubai, where they took on the JW Marriott Marquis – the world’s tallest hotel – a 72-story, 355 m twin-tower skyscraper.
Adam Scholes, Creative Director at J. Walter Thompson says: “Vadim and Vitaliy are the living, breathing embodiment of the Come and See campaign. They’re also crazy.”
In this climb we used trained professionals and safety equipment with the permission of the owners of the property, please do not attempt to copy or recreate anything from the climb.
