Ahn Jun stuns with her self-portrait series where she photographs herself balancing high up on an edge of buildings.

The moment you lay eyes on these photographs, you will instantly get an uneasy feeling as you witness the dainty photographer dangling herself off these extremely high structures. The daredevil's intent for accomplishing these feats is a result of a reflection of urban life and the isolating potential that such a vast and concrete jungle can provide. Aside from these death-defying feats, what is really captivating about these pictures is the clothing you see her in. In one picture, you see her sporting an oversized mens shirt while in another you see her wearing a party dress as fireworks go off behind her. It begins to make you wonder why it is that she is on the ledge of these buildings rather then joining in on the festivities.

Korean photographer Ahn Jun has been able to have the viewer of the pictures feel something and make them almost sympathetic to this woman, who looks to be trying to feel something more then simply an adrenaline rush.
