Taking place all over the city of Innsbruck, Austria, a mysterious man with a lampshade on his head poses for these curious pictures in a series simply called Die Lampe.

Though nothing is known of this person's identity nor of his actual appearance, the mystery man manages to evoke a playful spirit as well as stir up a few smiles along his journey. The lampshade man is seen trying out some pretty daring feats as he balances on the side of a railing, on the edge of rooftops and hanging off a bridge. The elusive man puts on a visual show, which simultaneously highlights both his bold tricks as well as the various locales of Austria.

He may not reveal his identity, but this is what makes the Die Lampe series even more intriguing. Stats for Self-Disguising Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
