Secret Mountain is a project based on vintage photographs found in various places. The collection displays images of nature, mountains, caves and landscapes, made during hikes, by unknown others in the past. I combine this collection with the portraits of mountains I make myself during hikes. The combination of images creates a documentation of an imaginary hike: a quest for secret mountain.
The combination of images creates a documentation of an imaginary hike: a quest for the Secret Mountain. The journey can be experienced both digital and physical. The website secret-mountain.org will serve as a travel log which will be updated frequently with new images and documentation. The physical result will be shown in an installation. The journey will be shown through photography; vintage, analogue, digital and polaroid, but also sculpture, video, collages and paintings.
Curious? Come along the hike and experience the journey
