Urban Vertigo: a Sensation of Spinning

Themed Collections

07 November 2017

Posted by Julie Bonzon

Have you ever had vertigo? This anxious feeling when you get to the top of the stairs? Or the cold sweat drenching your body while looking down the street from the top of a building? This selection of images visually explores what vertigo looks and feels like for many people. Whether experienced on an escalator or on a big wheel in a fairground, vertigo can be found everywhere and has become an interesting topic for photographers. By choosing a wide angle, or zooming into a particular aspect of a building, these photographers have created some truly vertigo-inducing images.

The photographer is looking down on Wacker Drive from the Wilis Tower Skydeck. This stunning street view has been taken from one of the glass observation boxes. Chicago, USA.
