New Rooftopping Show in Paris Will Make Your Heart Stop

Ready for a show like no other? Friend and famous rooftopper Tom Ryaboi has assembled an A-list team of fellow daredevil skyscraper climbers from around the world in an exhibition that will be one for the books. From January 16 to January 21, head to the top of the Publicis Groupe Headquarters on the Champs Elysees in Paris to see vertigo-inducing photos taken by Tom Ryaboi, Aurelie Curie, Andrew Tso, and Taran Cypher, on the rooftops of skyscrapers in Seattle, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Toronto.
