German photographer Niclas Moser recently published a series of photographs that document the lives the extreme athletes. For many adrenaline junkies, the urban environment provides the perfect playground for performing gravity-defying stunts. This series captures these athletes as they take on the urban jungle.

Moser's series follows the lives of extreme athletes such as skateboarders and parkour enthusiasts. Unlike other urban photographers, Moser captures extreme action shots in the most pure and simple way. The photos are mainly shot in black and white, which allows the viewer to focus on the subject instead of the surrounding environment. This technique also allows the viewer to observe the skill and dedication that these athletes bring to their craft.

The series demonstrates how an ordinary urban landscape can be transformed into a playground for adrenaline junkies.
