Karry Skarbakka’s photographs are amazing. This one is called Trestle and it’s now part of our collection. Check out his website for more amazing images.

Here’s what he says about this series of photographs:
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 plausibility of action, which grounds the image in reality. However, it is the ambiguity 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.
