Âkme – Mountain stories

Akmê
Mountain Stories

Akmê (from the ancient Greek word “summit”) is a series of photographs falling both within a documentary approach made of distant sobriety, and a research of aesthetic writing.

Mountains of Arctic Spitsbergen, Chilean fjords, Tierra del Fuego or the Antarctic Peninsula: summits are dissimilar but somehow always all same.

Inaccessible, indomitable, they are isolated from their landscape to be unified in a resurgence of the sublime.

There topographie, out of scale – shaped by tens of thousands years of elements erosion – are tangible marks of naturals changes of the planet, appeased in temporality.
