Sometimes, you gotta grab life by the ankles and hang upside down, like artist Li Wei likes to do. Using cables, scaffolding and elaborate mirror-gags, he shoots these almost unbelievable photos.

While his method is half performance art, half bag of tricks, digital manipulations is not part of the equation.
