Twenty-something year old living between Bristol, London and Paris. I've realised that this is mainly a place for me to go when I'm bored. It's strangely therapeutic and an efficient time waster, I guess?
When everything you’ve come to know and love in life gets turned upside down, sometimes the greatest remedy is to just escape into a photographic adventure. And that’s exactly what photographer Sebastiaan de With did after getting divorced and losing his job.
When everything he knew crumbled, de With embarked on the journey of a lifetime. After a friend happily offered to join him on his endeavors, de With packed a few bags, loaded them onto his Ducati GT1000 SportClassic, and (camera in tow of course) the duo headed out from San Francisco with the goal to travel as far north as the roads would take them.
Ends up, the roads led them into the arctic circle and beyond.
Swiss mountaineering brand Mammut frequently teams up with talented mountaineering photographer Robert Böesch to capture incredibly creative photographs that show off some of the Alps’ most renowned peaks alongside the Mammut gear that has often helped humans reach the summits of those peaks unharmed.
From the gorgeous Matterhorn image above — captured for the company’s 2015 ad campaigns — to the many images you’ll see below, each is a work of extreme coordination, patience, and photographic skill.
The Pièce de résistance, in our opinion, is this year’s image of the iconic Matterhorn. Each red light you see was placed there by mountaineers who climbed to the designated locations, lit up their lights, and illuminated the route taken by Edward Whymper and his team — the first to ascended the peak 150 years ago.
One of my favorite paintings I’ve done yet. This feels like a direction I’d be happy to pursue further. It’s inspired by my old photo collection, pornography and ghosts. I feel like the man doesn’t have any interest in lust, as if he loved and then lost and can’t forget what it means to really feel another person.
