Adventurous Mountaineers Scale the Alps for Incredible Photos

Adventurous Mountaineers Scale the Alps for Incredible Photos | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Although these stunning images might look like the work of Photoshop magic, photographer Robert Bösch (or Robert Boesch) captured these campaign photos for the Swiss mountaineering brand Mammut by carefully coordinating an entire team of mountaineers on the snowy Alps. Racing against time and extreme conditions, the team demonstrated their mountain-climbing skills and the durability of Mammut's products by hiking to incredible heights, hanging from suspension ropes in precise positions, and forming beautiful patterns and shapes spread over the landscape.

An upcoming exhibit at New York's International Center of Photography showcases master photographer Robert Capa's portraits of postwar life in Europe. Capa is best known for his black-and-white war photos, but this exhibit captures an entirely different side of his work, one that shows the glamorous lives of fashionable Europeans in brilliant full color.

Timescape by Eric Bourret

Timescape by Eric Bourret | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Eric Bourret is a walker, and he loves the mountains. His series Timescape examines landscapes and their relationship to time. He takes photographs in nature using a superimposition process with the negatives, which changes the standard perception of photography as instantaneous. Here, in the same image, the relationship between the past and the present can be felt. The photographs alone tell a little bit of the story. Like the image of passersby who have left their footprints in the snow, and who becomes almost invisible silhouettes in the distance. The series is on view at the Galerie Lazarew (Paris) through December 28, 2013.

Do they allow people to get anywhere close to this overhang today?  I hope not.  Brings back stressful memories of being with the kids at Niagara Falls.

Nenad Saljic Photography: A Portrait of
the Matterhorn

Nenad Saljic Photography: A Portrait of <br/>the Matterhorn | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

There are mountains, and there is the Matterhorn.
The Matterhorn was the last great Alpine peak to be climbed and its first ascent in 1865 marked the end of the golden age of alpinism. Seven men reached the summit but four died on the way back. The triumph and tragedy of this feat is the epitome of man's desire to explore, to go beyond the limit. A reminder of how great and how small we are at the same time.

Stephen Taylor's curator insight, February 16, 2014 6:33 PM

Why is the Matterhorn so spectacular?  From a geological point of view, it is where the Eurasia and African tectonic plates collide.  It is a symbol of the Alps.  The name Matterhorn means:  Matte, "meadow", and Horn, which means "peak". in German.  "More than 500 alpinists have died on the mountain, making the Matterhorn one of the deadliest mountains in the Alps.  What country would you visit to see the Matterhorn?
