Cirque de Gavarnie

Product Description
silver gelatin print  60 x 75 cm, edition 7+1 AP

The Cirque de Gavarnie is one of the Pyrenean sites that inspired 19th century visitors of the Pyrenees like Victor Hugo, who called it 'the Colosseum of nature'. Interestingly, he feels compelled to compare it to a human construction. Was he in lack of words, which would be surprising for a poet, or did he think his public needed some kind of clearer reference to appreciate the 'monument'. 

The mountain I photographed is in fact the mountain just left of the classic view of the Cirque. There's a passage up there on the left where you can get to the Spanish side to the Ordessa Valley with the Monte Perdido, the fetish mountain of Louis Ramond de Carbonnières, who is considered the first 'pyrenéist', the first to start exploring the higher regions of the Pyrenees. 

Framing: float frame 64 x 79 cm, solid beechwood oiled, inside painted black. The print is waxed to protect it from (light) accidental moisture and environmental degradation.
