i witnessed some epic cliff diving off of my favorite building in boston [it was their only stop in the US.]
Great shots. I love the quite empty frames with the cliff diver right at the edge…adds to the drama. Thanks for sharing!
Um. WOW. I think I had a minor panic attack just looking at these pictures…
Wow… so, can you explain how they landed? I am not up-to-date on cliff-diving.
they landed in the boston harbor! i had no idea it was deep enough but it was truly beautiful!
OMG I feel sick just looking at it! But you can’t help but admire the intestinal fortitude it must take to make such a dive.
WOW……What wonderful photos!
I wonder what one thinks about while falling that far!! Fantastic photos.
Oh. My. God. Spectacular.
That is unreal!! Incredible photographs!!
Thanks for sharing and congrats on being Freshly Pressed!
I absolutely love this series!

What the what?
What drives those people? I am terrified of falling off my couch.
enjoyed watching the different stunts as captured
My favorite is the fourth. It gives such a sense of I’m-not-quite-sure-what… freedom, I guess.
thank you so much. i thought the same thing!
This is amazing! I’m sure that is very thrilling and surprisingly addictive (like skydiving)!
i’m sure! i was addicted to watching it- so i can only imagine actually doing it! thank you for your comment!
Excellent photography! Emotive and rather poetic, actually

Holy. Crap. That is insane. You wouldn’t catch me doing that. I was going to say you I wouldn’t be caught dead doing that, but I probably would be dead. ; )

Great photography. The negative space is well implemented.
Very cool shots! Luv ‘em!

Nice info! Thanks for sharing this with us.
For real? AMAZING!
beautiful photos. should there ever be a need to design an ad, you’d have your background photos – the first two (grayscale and orangescale) side by side would be perfect!
Oh God!! Nice pictures XDD
Empty frame but all is way so perfect.
Bloody hell. The way you took these shots make it look like they are diving into nothing. Fantastic!
the framing is just beautiful! and the position of your subject !!!
i like it!
Inspirational. Great shots. The space is enriching and very dramatic.
Truly amazing! The choice of composition putting the divers off-centre comes out really nicely.
Thanks for sharing!

Crazy idea and wicked photography. Great work and holy response!
That is one awesome set of photographs. Very few people can make negative space look beautiful.
Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!
Oh, I forgot to ask…what camera did you use??
i use a canon 5d and with the cliff diving photos i used a 75-300 lens but i usually use a 24-70 lens.
Amazing shots. Very beautiful
Scary! Close line between skill and been silly.
Having jumped off a cliff over 50 feet I must admitt it was the most painful experince I have ever had. I thought I hit cement. Not for me but for those that love the adreline rush more power to you! Great pics!
[...] Photographer Shaylah Fawn beautifully captures athletes in flight at the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Boston last Saturday. These swan divers appear to defy gravity as Fawn strategically eliminates the essential platform – in this case, Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s famed ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) building. [...]
I love how simple these images look but there is so much movement at the same time
