Alps // 40 is a photo exhibition set high in the Swiss Alps, shot and produced by photographer Jamie Kripke.
Jamie’s journey to the Alps centered on slowing down and taking the time to really see. 120 images were created over 8 days, 14 were carefully selected for the exhibition. Only one exposure per image was allowed.
Using alpine touring skis, a small backpack, a folding medium format camera and twelve rolls of black-and-white film with ten exposures per roll, I set out to traverse and photograph a high route across the Alps. Each piece of equipment for this trip was chosen for its simplicity as well as its limitations — and for the extra time, attention, and patience it required.
