Sandro Giordano was born in Rome in 1972, although he spends most his time in Barcelona now. I have to confess here,…Sandro Giordano is not a film photographer. In fact, his project has seen capture devices as varied as an iPhone 5s to a Canon 600D. Although now he mostly uses a Nikon D5500. I suppose because of the point of view of his images, I would guess that having a flip out screen is quite beneficial. But his art is so unique, I had to include his vision on Anatomy Films.
Sandro Giordano and his Nikon D5500
He studied set design at the “Istituto per la Cinematografia e la Televisione Roberto Rossellini” in Rome. He became a very respected light and sound engineer in the local theatres. But in 1993, he decided to study acting, and soon was working in theatre and movies with directors such as Luciano Melchionna, Giancarlo Cobelli, Dario Argento, Davide Marengo, Carlo Verdone. However, in 2013, Sandro Giordano has been entirely devoted to his photographic project “IN EXTREMIS (bodies with no regret)”.
Italian photographer Sandro Giordano is trying to realize the metaphor of capturing the downfall of man. And what more visualizes that then face plants and belly flops. A big blackout of monumental proportions, with possession reduced to no more than a heap of trash scattered to the wind. People who have just tired and given up on all they thought that mattered in on big cataclysmic event. Even one more step would be too much.
Sometimes when viewing his well assembled chaos, the viewer is not sure whether he/she should laugh or cry. Tragedy, humor,….and a visual tornado, elicit mixed emotions in all but the most staid of individuals. Sandro Giordano,…an engineer, an actor,…and now truly an artist.
