LEAVING BEHIND

DATE

2015 - 2016



IN THE SUMMER OF 2015, I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CAPTURE THE GRANDEUR AND RUGGEDNESS OF THE ALPS. THE FIRST IMAGE OF THE SERIES, "THE TRAGEDY OF PIZ BERNINA", SHOWS THE MOUNTAIN WHERE, ONE YEAR AFTER THIS IMAGE WAS TAKEN, HIGH ALTITUDE CLIMBER NORBERT JOOS LOST HIS LIFE WHILE GUIDING A GROUP BACK FROM THE 4,049M SUMMIT. "LEAVING BEHIND" PAYS TRIBUTE TO ALL WHO ATTEMPT TO CONQUER THEIR FEARS AND TO ALL PIONEERS WHO SHOW US THE POWER OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.



”THE SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT MOMENT
ENCOUNTER AND CHALLANGE THE UNKNOWN
FINALLY, FINDING A PIECE OF SILENCE”
