Admit it, you can't help but chuckle when watching people falling every now and then -- as long as they don't get injured. There is something comical about the little moment of human defeat by gravity. San Giordoan decided to play off that humor for his ongoing photo series 'In Extremis,' which translates to "bodies with no regret."
Giordoan conducts comical photo shoots with women in heels who have taken a tumble and face-planted into the ground. Each woman is meticulously styled and staged with her belongings in hand because the photographer wanted to depict "the willingness of people to place their material possession before their own safety." Thus, they would rather face the wrath of falling than let their material goods be damaged.
