Ratrak

The power of the mountain and of machine combine in a night-time setting  to  reveal  a  unique  image. On  the  slopes  of various swiss  ski  resorts,  where  throughout  the  day  buildings  and  spaces  weave  themselves into the fabric of familiar winter sport environments, a series  of  unknown  landscapes  form  once  night  falls - mysterious  visions that arise in the beam of a ratrak’s headlights - our view of these  locations  given  a  new  breath  of  life  through  this  fascinating  effect.
Two complementary approaches have allowed us to achieve these photographs. The first is to stage the ratrak in the background, in order to show the elements of the landscape and their context. In the second, the machine is present in the images but only through its beam of light.
