Tour du Mont-Blanc


At the origin of this project there is a hike around the "roof of Europe" - Tour of the Mont Blanc. This trail, that surrounds the landscapes of the great snowy mountains of the Alps, its glaciers, native forests and rocky plains, seems to reveal the origin of wildlife.

Throughout this journey of 174 km in 12 days of travel, a photographic record was accomplished from a distance determined according to the surrounding nature itself. At each interval, two photographs were taken of the left and the right side of the landscape, thus covering the entire front view angle.

The presentation requires a specific projection, consisting of two large wooden screens – that form together a panorama joined at the center by an angle of 120 °, intending to respect exactly the angle that distanced the captures, left and right, during the the TMB route.
