Photographer Vincent Laforet recently soared 7,500 feet in a helicopter above New York City to capture breathtaking aerial photos of the glittering cityscape at night. Held in only by a full-body harness, leaning out of the chopper over a literally breathtaking height, the photographer says his experience was “both exhilarating and terrifying” and “the scariest. . . and the most beautiful” flight of his career.
The photography series is titled Gotham 7.5K, and were shot on assignment for Men’s Health Magazine for an article about psychology. We really love the result..
