Rooftopping Photography is the guerrilla art of photographing cities from atop skyscrapers, buildings or construction sites.
When photographing from a rooftop I think we are capturing the growth of a city and years from now people will look back at the movement and they will see how a city like Toronto grew.
Rooftopping photography allows us to see how a city is forced to grow vertically when there is no more room to grow at the surface level. Through this form of photography we will also see the progression of building design and how creativity in architecture can transform a skyline over time. I am just one of many people who are taking part in this photography genre of urban exploring and I hope that one day a few of my shots might mean something to someone.
