Falling Photos: The Struggle to Right Oneself

Kerry Skarbakka is sure to impress with his surprising and highly dynamic falling photography. Using climbing gear and other rigging, he photographs the body as it dangles from unusual heights or tumbles down flights of stairs. He has been creating the portfolio of his pictures since 2002, which have been exhibited across the world. In his own words:

“We are a visual culture wherein photography has become an exceedingly powerful form of communication Moreover, the development of digital technologies in the past ten tears has wiped traditional artistic boundaries away. As a result, it is now vital to educate students to broader vision. As an artist, it is imperative to be aware of the language of photography and to understand the responsibility image making has within our culture. To be a successful communicator, it is necessary to learn the tools and skills inherent within this practice. More importantly, is the understanding of how to control the and apply its principles with though and sophistication.”
