In his project, the Italian photographer Sandro Giordano (Sandro Giordano) captured the curious falls of people. Staged, of course, but that's why they are no less funny. It is enough to consider the details of the fall of these unfortunate people, as it becomes clear that it was not always a simple carelessness.
The project is called " In Extremis (Bodies With No Regret)", and the photographer himself talks about it like this:
"My photos are short stories about a falling apart world. Each of the characters is such a peculiar character who, on the one hand, is trying to break out of his imposed image, and on the other hand, is firmly stuck in the imitation of life, without even trying to feel the real reality.
The heroes of my pictures have reached their limit, beyond which they simply cannot pretend anymore. Each of them is holding on to some object, unable to let it out of his hands, and it is this thing that is the symbol of their fake life. This falseness is also displayed in the characters ' clothes, in their hairstyles and in the place of their fall. I want to show the tragedy through the irony."
