Frightful Falling Self-Portraits by Kerry Skarbakka

Falling self-portraits by Kerry Skarbakka

Photographer Kerry Skarbakka creates frightening self-portraits in which he appears to be falling. The photos are created with the use of safety rigging, however the process is clearly not for the faint of heart. For more photos see his series “The Struggle to Right Oneself” and “Life Goes On.”

The images stand as ominous messages and reminders that we are all vulnerable to losing our footing and grasp. Moreover, they convey the primal qualities of the human condition as a precarious balancing act between the struggle against our desire to survive and our fantasy to transcend our humanness.
