Documenting her own death


Here’s someone who likes to take photographs of herself on top of tall buildings.  She’s nominating herself for a Darwin Award, and when the day come, we’ll all enjoy the record of her inching towards her own stupid death.  

The Daily Mail reports

A fearless artist has gone to extreme lengths for the perfect self portrait – dangling off skyscrapers.

Jun Ahn, from Seoul, South Korea, has travelled to the top of some of the biggest buildings in her native city, New York and Hong Kong to sit, stand, perch and pose at dizzying heights.

In some of the daring artworks, viewers are afforded stomach churning vertical views of Jun’s feet dangling hundreds of feet above the bustling city streets below, while others show her gingerly peering over the edge.

Jun, 32, takes the images using setting up cameras with self timers to capture her in the extreme positions.

‘People always ask whether the images are real and in all these pictures I was actually there, not photoshopped. Of course it is not a safe situation. But I always try to be careful,’ she said.

On the good side, the blog will get another post out of it when she’s splattered all over the ground.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
