Falling everywhere in pictures

Visual artist and educator Kerry Skarbakka, in his photo series The Struggle To Right Oneself, photographs himself — with the help of climbing gear and various equipment — dangling perilously or tumbling down in frightful situations. His work is in response to the human experience of uncertainty and balance; of relinquishing and taking control. As he says in his artist statement, the images “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.”
