Thumbs up for the man who breaks his bones in the name of art. The Falling Photographer, as he is commonly known, shoots photo of himself right in the middle of a big fall, again in the name of art.
Kerry Skarbakka says he first began taking falling pictures right after the events of 9/11 and uses his body ” as a metaphor to describe the tensions and anxieties we all feel.” For some of his works, the artist uses special rigging and climbing equipment to achieve the desired effect, but he often plunges dangerously, with no protection.
The Falling Photographer travels all over the world in search for suitable locations to shoot his photos and he also sets up scenes in his personal studio. For the bathtub photo below, he installed an installation to make him flip in the air, but he still banged his head on the side of the tub a few times. Cheers!
