Photographer Uses Pics To Tell Hilarious ‘Short Stories’ Of One’s Bad Day

What kind of narration can you come up with?

Every picture has a story to tell, just like the ones taken by Sandro Giordano. And like any other photographer, he, too, has a genre or theme that he focuses on. His most popular theme is “IN EXTREMIS (bodies with no regret).”

“My photographs are “short stories” about a world that is falling down,” he explains his snaps. “Each shot tells about worn-out characters who, in a sudden black-out of mind and body, crash with no attempt to save themselves. They are unable to, because of the fatigue of the everyday representation of living, oppressed by appearance instead of simply existing.”

He shares his vision for these images, I believe that perfection is in imperfection. It is in strong contrasts, in frailty, and in the humanity that makes each individual different from the rest.”

“I hide the face of my characters in order for their BODY to speak for them. This fall is the point of no return.”

Sandro uses the phrase “you must hit rock bottom to start over” as the basis of his works. The way his characters always look like they fall face first as they’re overwhelmed with so many things signifies that feeling of hitting rock bottom. Yet, they are unable to hold themselves up because there are things in their hands, whether that’s a handbag or food.

Sandro never uses dummies and always has professional actors or models for his shots! He’s very inspired by classic comedy shows by Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy where slapstick and silent, physical comedies were prevalent.

“In their films we often see terrible things happen to the characters, serious accidents… THE FALL…”

“The instinctive reaction is bewilderment and awkwardness towards the unlucky fate of the character but then that same awkwardness breaks into a liberating laugh. This is the effect I wish to recreate through my photographs: tell tragedy through irony.”
