Ste-Foy-Tarentaise, France, 2009
from the series Naked

This image was taken near Ste-Foy-Tarentaise, a very small ski resort in the French Alps. Myself and a couple of friends took a backcountry descent away from the resort and began to skitour toward the summit of Rochers de Pierre Pointe (3273 metres). The cloud was building on the valley headwall and the resulting light was beautiful. It turned out to be the last of the sun that day.

Both this photograph, and "Glacier d'Argentière, Chamonix. France", became part of the series Naked - called so, because the overwhelming feeling I had while shooting in these vast wildernesses was one of being exposed and vulnerable. They were born from a desire I had to make landscape photography with more meaning, more that just an editorial assignment. I began thinking about why we were there in such an iconic landscape, and about the nature of the relationship between human beings and the wilderness that surrounds us. This became the foundation for a framework that encompasses all of my subsequent work.
