Mountain#07

Product Description
silver gelatin print 18 x 18 cm. edition 32+2 AP

In the way we look at mountains, often it's like there's only one or two characteristics that really matter: the height of its peak and the risk of climbing it. In summer there are stately processions of people going up to the top of the highest peaks. 

I photographed a collection of peaks that don't have the reputation of the big names in the Pyrenees. They're out there, left in silence, winter or summer. Peaks usually got their names during the age of explorers. People started to conquer and name mountain peaks (naming is also a kind of conquering). But it also objectifies the peak and sort of colonises it. Photographing them is not innocent and also sort of objectifies them. By presenting them here anonymously, I reject this process of colonisation and let them gently slip into oblivion again.

Framing: shadowbox frame 32.2 x 39.2 cm, solid beechwood oiled, inside lined with black matting board. The print is dry mounted on a separate matting board. Museum glass (anti reflective and UV protective).
