Falling in public is embarrassing, but it can also be inspirational. That’s the case of Sandro Giordano
, who were to become an actor but has finally made it as a photographer. After suffering an accident when riding a bike in Barcelona, he needed to exorcise the trauma. And photography helped him do it. Now, five years later after the event, he’s still working on the ongoing project In Extremis
, where he masterfully recreates falls of everyday people (in the cinema, in a hospital or at the hairdresser), with tons of wit, humour and irony. We talk with him about art as a therapy, copycats on Instagram, and his favourite fall.
