About the work

A celestial odyssey in the heart of the Mont Rose massif. Like an ode to the most grandiose mountains in the Valais Alps and the splendour of their thousand-year-old glaciers. From the summit of Nordend, the work guides us to the famous Dufourspitze, Switzerland's highest summit . Our journey continues to the Zumsteinspitze to reach the Margherita hut, perched on the Pointe Gnifetti on the Swiss-Italian border.

As autumn settles over the Alps, the first snows have sprinkled the high summits of Monte Rosa. Revealing the renewed mountain to the world, the clouds tear, twirl and cling to the sparkling peaks, conforming to the will of Aeolus and his impetuous breath. As a photographer of the heights, I listen to the mountains and watch the skies, ready to capture the precious moment that emerges from nothing. Fulgurance of nature in the grip of the elements' swirling fury. Vibrating with emotion, I watch the shadows sculpt the mountain, the sun illuminate its glaciers. The rocky horns of an invincible sovereign emerge from the mist to proclaim his victory.

This painting immortalizes a decisive stage in the history of the Alps. After overcoming the ravages of a particularly dry summer in 2022, the Monte Rosa massif is now revealing its innermost faults. Every year, its glaciers retreat further, despite their impressive size and altitude. Along with Mont Blanc, it will undoubtedly become the last Alpine refuge of eternal snows. The last witness to a fading world. The last bastion of an inexorably warming earth.

I didn't have the heart to photograph these mountains during the summer months. The opacity of their destiny reflected in their dry, dark rock. With a wounded soul, I waited for the first autumn rains to return before finally finding the peaks sprinkled with white. This is how the majestic and crystalline summits move me. But as the snow covers them, it reveals the scars of a mountain battered by the ravaging sun. This is the paradox of my art, which highlights the infinite beauty of the Alps while revealing the drama that plays out there. The crevasses of Monte Rosa as sublime and painful scars.

Collector's notice

We enjoy it every day!

As former inhabitants of Zermatt, it's hard to forget the Matterhorn, even in a new environment of mountains and nature.we discovered this large photo of the Matterhorn in a gallery, so strong and intense, it was impossible to forget it........ It became obvious that it should adorn our new apartment as a centerpiece.What's more, we had a very sympathetic contact with the artist, who came himself to deliver his work.It's very appreciable and adds a dimension to the object, to know its creator, his passion, the conditions under which it was taken.The texture of the photo resembles a painting, the lights play on it, Next the hours. It seems alive. A real daily pleasure!

We were bowled over!

My wife and I are amazed at the quality of print and the rendering of this magnificent photo. We had waited many years to put a picture on this blank wall because we had never "flashed" on a piece of art. Now we've found it, and it fits in perfectly at the entrance to our apartment. What's more, it depicts 3 summits that are particularly close to our hearts: the Weisshorn, Dent Blanche and the Matterhorn - quite a symbol... We'd like to thank you again for your impeccable service (rapid response to enquiries, hyper-realistic projection of the work on the photos of the wall beforehand). In short, we have nothing to complain about and look forward to seeing you at an opening.
