The Struggle to Right Oneself: Photos by Kerry Skarbakka

Published Feb 3, 2013

Kerry Skarbakka is an American visual artist working in photography and video.

These incredible falling pictures are part of his series entitled “The Struggle to Right Oneself”. The artist explains:

“Philosopher Martin Heidegger described human existence as a process of perpetual falling, and it is the responsibility of each individual to catch ourselves from our own uncertainty. This unsettling prognosis of life informs my present body of work.

Using myself as model and with the aid of climbing gear and other rigging, I photograph the body as it dangles from dangerous precipices or tumbles down flights of stairs. The captured gesture of the body is designed for plausiblity of action, which grounds the image in reality. However, it is the ambiguiy of the body’s position in space that allows and requires the viewer to resolve the full meaning of the photograph. Do we fall? Can we fly? If we fly then loss of control facilitates supreme control.”
